i love our soldiers, but i must say that the only ones i know personally have raised very bratty children lol. of course not all the kids turn out that way, but it does seem to be a common stereotype. why is it like that? maybe from moving around so much? i am just curious.... all the 'brats' i know are full grown now so it's past the point of help for them lol.

I worked on post at an after school program for military students and they are normal kids with the exception that they are very strong and deal with more things than most of children have to deal with. The term brat actually came from the British army and has since been adapted to our military. BRAT stands for British Regiment Attached Travelers. Britain's military was one of the first that allowed dependents to accompany the military member.
