There are quite a few "famous" military brats and TCKs. Some "served" from birth through graduation, others for just a few years as toddlers. But "being a brat" doesn't start when a parent is deployed and it doesn't end when they take your I.D. card away. In fact, some of the most difficult challenges a brat faces begin when they leave the military/TCK environment and try to fit into a more rooted, civilian world.
Brats are brats for life, just like veterans. It shapes the way we think and feel and behave. We are different than kids who grew up in one place their entire childhood. Not better or worse - just different.
The first "Famous Brats List" was created by Air Force Brat Glenn Greenwood for AOSHS, the American Overseas Schools Historical Society. While we add to Glenn's list and put together our own, check out some of the other lists that have found their way out into the world.
