(And it’s not JUST for military kids! We also want to hear from DOD, CIA, FBI, Ambassador/Diplomat & any other Gov’t kids!!)
Military kids move every 1-6 years, with notices to move as little as 30 days in advance! The military dictates pretty much most of our life; where we live, where we go to school, when and how long our parent(s) will be off to war and so many other things. We have no real “home” like everyone else. Our response to the question, “Where are you from?” is a long list of places & times.
Maybe we’re luckier than others, because we have more than one “home.” We are children of the world, we are from everywhere, from everything. We have seen people & cultures our peers only read about in books. We eat foods & go places only seen on the internet by others. We get so used to moving & being somewhere new that we become restless when we’ve stayed in one place for long. Military kids are citizens of the world; the most resilient & adaptable people you’ll ever know.
The whole point of this blog is to get us all together to be each others’ support, to share adventures with each other and enjoy having someone understand what being a “military brat” is all about.
