Overview

As one of the first dependents to be sent overseas at the end of WWII, eight-year old Marilyn Celeste Morris received her very own orders from The War Department,
From Seoul, Korea, to Linz, Austria,she traversed theblobe from 1938 to 1958 withe her Army Officer father, mother and younger brothers. Between assignments in the primitve world of the Far East, to the sublime luxury of exploring castles in Bavarika, the family shuttled between the various Stateside Forts: Bragg, Riley, Hood and Sill. Someyimes hilarious, somettimes gut wrenchibngly sad, her narrative is part travelogue, part therapy session. Sbhe still cries at "Taps" and stands tall when the colors pass; yet she realizes she carries an odd mixture of pride andd resentment over her nomadic way of life.
Her conclusion, however,. is that the wouldn't have it any other way. Once a Brat,Always a Brat.
The second portion of this book has been called, "A field manual for understanding Military Brats." We are a lost tribe, who are constantly seeking a permanent home. Stoies from other Brats are also included with her impression of "why we are the way we are."

    Highly recommend

    Zoe Ann & I are both military brats. We enjoyed Marilyn's perspective on this unique lifestyle. Brought back a lot of good memories.

    I really enjoyed reading this book! The individual stories at the end of the book were the best part, in my opinion. In fact, I think I was working at the American Embassy in Bonn at the same time that the father of a Brat was stationed there! Small world, indeed.
