I Grew Up As An Air Force Brat

    Can't Stay Still

    Moving around so much as a kid still affects me even though its been half my life since my ma was retired. I still haven't lived in any one state for more than three and a half years. Don't know why. I guess moving after a certain amount of time in place just got to be a habit...

    No... Seriously... I Did...

        Everyone that has ever read my stories will know exactly what my father did to me. (And all those other 142 kids) But what they didn't know is that my dad WAS in the Air Force...     My father did his share of "Good Deeds" but his "Evil Deeds" were way more. For...

    I Feel Like I Don't Belong Anywhere

    NOW before I start on the negatives, I want to say that I do not regret the choice my dad made.  It made me who I am today, good and bad.  I can adjust to new situations like nothing.  I can read people easily and I am confident in myself.  People would...

    It Changes Your Life Forever....

    I grew up on SAC bases for the most part being born in England at Greenham Common in 1956.  We moved to Lincoln, AFB then back to RAF Upper Heyford in the early 60s.  Got to see how tight a base got with security first hand during the Cuban Missile Crisis. ...

    Vagabonds

    Growing up in the air force was not always easy or fun. My big brother was born in Louisiana. I was born in Alabama and my younger brother was born in Japan. When my dad retired i had just finished 8th grade. Had been to 6 different schools in 4 different countries. It wasnt easy...

    Never Stayed In One Place For Too Long...

    Growing up I did not know what it was like to stay in the same place. I was born in Orlando, then moved to Arkansas, Maine and finally Georgia. Being an Air Force brat is pretty tough. The hardest part was loosing friends all the time. You would just get a nice group that you...

    Me Too! (to Quote E.p.)

    i moved on average about every 2 and a half years.  i had a somewhat less positive view, as i'm a girl who moved for the last time right around her 13th birthday (dad retired).  i felt like i had a hard time fitting in the last time, because i was older and it mattered...

    Former Air Force Brat

    My dad was in the Air Force for about 20-21 years or so.  Here's how the "moving timeline" went: I was born in Washington D.C. and lived in Alexandria, Virginia.  Then, we moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado.  Then we moved back to Virginia, but this...

    Where?

    I HATE the question 'where are you from?' because there is no easy answer: all require an explanation. Where was a born? Provo, Utah. Do I EVER want to claim that place? NO! And I only lived there 2 months anyway. Where did I 'grow up' the most? Germany. This results in the...

    Pretty Great Life

    It seems funny now but I was starting high school before I realized that people stayed in the same town most of thier lives.  I thought everyone lived like we did.  We moved on average about every two years.  There was one year when we moved to three different...

    I miss military life.

    It's been many years since I lived on base. The smell of paint reminds me of home. If I could redo part of my life, I'd have gone into the Air Force in the 90's.
