Brat Facts

I come from this close-knit family of Brats.
Military Brats, that is.

We go through all of the horrors a military family entails. We face the hardships of our parent being gone for many months at a time and having to learn how to be strong without them.
Sometimes. . . It's a nightmare.

But despite all of the troubled skies that we most often have to face, I know I wouldn't trade this life for anything.

1. Introduction

My name is Kay.

I was born in a hospital in a very small town in Oklahoma. Following my birth, I lived in Vance, Air Force Base, Oklahoma, where my dad was stationed for 9 months.

Then we moved.

And moved.

And moved again.

I'm a Brat.

Not a Brat in a derogatory sense.

I have no hurt feelings about being called a Brat. In fact, the only emotion I feel when I get called a Brat is pride.

It is the best compliment you could ever give me.

Why yes, I am a Brat; I'm an Airforce Brat!


My dad served for 21 years and retired as a Master Sergeant in 2013. 

I had never been more proud of my dad than when I was at his retirement ceremony.

I saw him standing on the stage, receiving his final stripe, and I cried.

My heart swelled and I couldn't stop the tears.

It was a wondrous event.


Now don't get me wrong, being a Brat isn't easy.

But it's a life I wouldn't trade for anything in this world.

*Some of these chapters could go into depth about certain points, others could only be a few sentences, it really depends.

*A lot of these chapters focus on the Air Force, mainly because that's my branch. I'm not trying to be biased towards only the Air Force, I apologize, I just don't have any experience of being a Brat in any other branch.

*Let me know what you think!

*Let me know if I'm missing anything.
