Drafted At Birth

June 30, 1991

To suggest that military brats are owed some commendation for having forfeited an imaginary, stationary Donna Reed home life is arrogant. The military provided me with a challenging, experience-rich, maturing lifestyle. By the time I was 13, I'd had the privilege of living on three continents and of shaking hands with world leaders. I would not trade those times for any other childhood and I have a cadre of "brat" lifelong friends who would agree.

No, father is not a fearful word to me. It is an awesome word.
