Update: 9/4/12: Since most of this blog is about Dialysis, I started a new one where I’ll pine for the past and share my stories about being a military brat. Eventually, I’ll move all the relevant posts to that side. So, please take a look at “LegacyTales” and bookmark it for future visits.
I’ve got 30 minutes to spare and figured I’d share this with you, my blogosphere friends. I have a reader who shares my experience with being a military brat. A military brat is a person who grew up with a parent/s in the military and therefore generally lived a transient life as they moved from base to base. I speak in the past sense but there are still military brats who are experiencing this lifestyle now.
It’s a rare thing and has its own pluses and minuses. You can read about one person’s experience here. Her name is Rachael and she has some interesting tales to tell about growing up as an MBrat.
Also, there’s a blog here about the American Military Family Museum that is building a database of information and stories about the families that accompany and support those serving in the US Armed Services.
As to my own experience, I will blog more later in detail but suffice to say, I have many, many stories to tell that extend from the US to Asia to Europe and back. I attended so many schools that I had to write out a list to remember them all. It’s a long list. I made and lost so many friends that it’s just as difficult to remember them all. I often find myself wondering what happened to many of them. I’ve been able to contact a few in particular but like smoke from a campfire, they are quickly lost in the winds of time.
Gotta go for the day. My 30 minutes is up. Blog ya later for more of this. Have a great day.
