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”.
