This is going to be quick because I need to get outside and play with MY favorite Military-Brats. It is their first day of Spring Break. It is over 70 degrees outside. There is no reason for my to be behind the computer EXCEPT as a quick reminder that April is Month of the Military Child! What a wonderful group-of people to celebrate. I am one! I may be 36… but will always be a Brat! It has defined me, and continues to define me.
My own children, are a different sort of Brat. They may not PCS every two-years like I did as a child but they have seen their father head off to war and have missed him for a year at a time.
There is no ‘standard’ brat in today’s society. That is for certain.
So before I head out to enjoy the sunshine … I thought I would leave you with some great Military Brat Resources! I hope you enjoy them and then go and enjoy your own ‘Brats’!
