Anonymous said: Pros and cons of growing up as a military brat?

milsotherapy:

I don’t know how to fully answer this…I don’t mean to be rude because..being a military brat is all I know. That was my childhood. It’s my lifestyle.

I don’t think they are really any cons to my upbringing because well, that was my life! I was a kid lol. I enjoyed being a kid. 

I didn’t know what a military brat even was until somebody labeled me, you know? I just grew up with my Dad being in the military and my family being in the military and that’s all I know. I didn’t think of myself as a military brat, just a kid. Just a kid growing up lol

The concept of settling down is terrifying. From marriage to children, the idea that moving could stop scares me to death.
