The Stars and Stripes has an interesting column featuring quotes from military/overseas brats as grown ups, looking back.  The people talked to, it should be noted, chose to stay within the sphere of the DOD/military in some capacity.  Here’s a snippet:

Air Force Lt. Col. Robyn Chumley, daughter of an Air Force dad, said she had a hard time finding a downside to her military childhood.

“You know, as soon as I think of a negative, like moving so frequently, I realize it’s a positive: seeing new places, meeting new people,” Robyn said. “I somewhat envy people who’ve known their neighbors for years, watching each other’s children grow up … But I wouldn’t trade my experience as an Air Force brat — as an airman — for their sedentary life.”
