Military Brats: Legacies of Childhood Inside the Fortress
This is the ground-breaking book that launched the movement for military brat cultural identity. Based on five years of research, including in-depth interviews with scores of adult military brats as well as psychologists, researchers, teachers, and others, this book examines the military as the home culture for the millions of children who were born into it, shaped by it, and decades later continue to bear its stamp. Military Brats not only defines America's most invisible minority for the first time, it also passionately exhorts those grown children to come to terms with their negative Fortress legacies so that they might take full advantage of the positive endowment that is also their birthright. For those who always considered themselves rootless, this book is a revelation of cultural identity that informs and liberates. Novelist Pat Conroy, raised in a Marine family, provides a passionate introduction.
