Not all military brats live overseas, but many do. BRATS: Our
Journey Home talks to brats who have lived, among other places, in Vietnam (in 1962),
Korea, the Phillipines, France, Iran, Turkey, Ethiopia, and post-war Germany and Japan.

fraught with danger, and living a traditional American life in the middle of a foreign country
can be a bit odd, to say the least. Returning to the United States can be a severe culture shock,
as well, because these children no longer have the same perspective as their peers do.
