Announcement    WELCOME TO THE BRAT SHOPPE! AS A MILITARY BRAT THAT WAS BORN INTO AN AIR FORCE FAMILY IT OCCURRED TO ME THAT SO MANY FELLOW BRATS YEARN FOR ITEMS THAT SHOW THEIR ADOPTED TERM OF ENDEARMENT SO WE CREATED THE BRAT SHOPPE!
WHAT IS A BRAT? A BRAT IS A MILITARY DEPENDENT THAT WAS BORN INTO A FAMILY WHERE THE FATHER OR MOTHER (OR SOMETIMES BOTH) SERVED IN ONE OF THE BRANCHES OF THE MILITARY. TYPICALLY THE BRAT TERM IS USED TO DESCRIBE A CHILD THAT IS OUT OF CONTROL (OH SO CONTRARY)!! IN THE CASE OF A MILITARY BRAT IT IS AN ACRONYM FOR BOLD, RESILIANT, ADAPTABLE AND TENACIOUS. A PERFECT DESCRIPTION OF A CHILD THAT WAS BORN INTO A FAMILY THAT TRAVELS FROM ONE BASE TO ANOTHER EVERY 3-4 YEARS (SOMETIMES EVEN MORE FREQUENTLY). THUS CREATING AN ADAPTABLE CHILD THAT HAS NO OTHER CHOICE BUT TO EXEMPLIFY THE POSITION OF THEIR MILITARY PARENT. WHAT OTHER CHOICE DO THEY HAVE?
BEING A BRAT MOST DEFINITELY HAS ITS REWARDS! IF IT WASN’T FOR THE MILITARY I WOULDN’T HAVE SEEN SO MANY COUNTRIES AND MET SO MANY PEOPLE WITH DIFFERENT CULTURES. PERHAPS THE MOST IMPORTANT BENEFIT TO A BRAT IS MEETING OTHER BRAT’S AND HAVING A BOND THAT TRULY LASTS A LIFETIME. THANK GOODNESS FOR SOCIAL MEDIA THAT HAS RECONNECTED SO MANY AND MADE NEW RELATIONSHIPS.
IF YOU MEET A BRAT DON’T ASK THEM “WHERE ARE YOU FROM” BECAUSE THE ANSWER WILL ALWAYS BE “FROM EVERYWHERE”. WITH NO REAL PLACE TO CALL HOME WE ARE FOREVER A CITIZEN OF THE WORLD AND EMBRACE ALL CULTURES AND PEOPLE. NEXT TIME YOU MEET A BRAT AND WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THEM, ASK AS I’M SURE THEY’D BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO SHARE THEIR EXPERIENCES.
ONCE A BRAT ALWAYS A BRAT!

WITH LOTS OF LOVE AND PEACE,

A PROUD AIR FORCE BRAT
