THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA MILITARY BRATS SEAL symbolizes the unification of all Military Children; past present and future. The BRATS seal fully recognizes and encompasses a Military Child’s character growing up as Military Children.

BRATS values are proudly embraced as their own unique cultural identity and a heritage experienced by BRATS alone.

Military BRATS collectively have a determined proud patriotic spirit; born, raised and trained in military environments. Yet, BRATS display individually, courageous and tenaciously strong spirits; overcoming adversity and excelling in the face of the unknown as they are raised by warriors who continually seek peace and harmony wherever they roam.All Military BRATS when asked where they are from; say the answer is complicated. Due to the numerous moves during their childhood, or simply where they were born, the location may no longer exist, or where they just moved from last may not be recognized to new people they meet as a foreign country unknown them. Yet the answer for BRATS can be most easily answered; “I am a BRAT, wherever the service-member was needed was where I, as a military child call home”.


– Around the encircling outside band of the Seal, the inscription reads “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” at the top and “MILITARY BRATS” on the bottom which signifies the unified cultural heritage of military children recognized for their entire lives simply by the name; BRATS. BRATS are Military children who display a unique character trait; Spunk, depicted by the pinwheels on each side of “MILITARY BRATS”.

– In the center of the Military BRATS Seal is displayed our Nations emblem of strength and freedom, the American Bald Eagle.

– The Eagle bears on its breast a shield of thirteen pieces Argent and Gules, a chief boldly blazoned “BRATS” representing a unified cultural heritage uniquely their own as military children.

– The shield is supported solely by the American Eagle recognizing military children as BRATS, the first line of support to those whose who serve in the United States of America Military Services.

– The thirteen stars above the American Eagle signify the unification of the original 13 colonies; Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia.

– Between the stars are alternating rays of light signifying the glory of God, Country and Family.

– The five solid stars above the American Eagle’s head represent the five branches of Military Services; Navy, Marine Corps, Army, Coast Guard and Air Force that all Military BRATS are family members of and grow up embracing the Military culture and values of those who serve.

-The Globe signifies the United States Military Brats homes are found all over the world.

– The Dandelion is the official flower of all Military Children; BRATS. Below the American Eagle, is a Dandelion chain wreath; denoting the unified strength of Military BRATS from all branches of the services.

– The American Eagle carries in its claws the Dandelion seeds representing the life of children of Military Service-Members as BRATS; who display their strength and tenacity as they bloom wherever they travel or find themselves planted by the needs of the military services.

– The Dandelion Seed to the right of the Eagle represents a single bloom with a single seed floating away; a BRAT moving away, with their military sponsor as their fellow BRATS remain jointly or move elsewhere in a different direction as displayed on the left side of the Eagle.

– The Eagle holds in its beak a scroll inscribed “Pluribus Locis Nostrum”, which is Latin meaning “Many Places Our Home” and stands for all the locations a BRAT has embraced as their home growing up as a military child from birth to the year they aged out, usually between 18-23 years old.

    This needs to be made into a challenge coin. The other side could be made into every branch of the service so you could buy the branch you grew up in.

  3. Ellen Yoder says:

    Where can this seal be purchased??

  4. Fellow Brat says:

    Meh. A little too much like the DoD emblem it borrows from. Too much on the dandelions, good Latin quote. Could be improved.

    I like it but I’m wondering about its scalability. I’m seeing the writing and I’m thinking about what it would look like if you decreased this in size for a lapel pin. Just a thought.
