Military brats tell all in new book
Those of us military brats who grew up thinking we knew everything about life on a military base — well, think again.
In her book “Military Brats,” Mary Edwards Wcrtsch offers the eye opening testimonies of 80 adults who grew up in the armed forces. Wensch, herself military brat t ro-vides a perspective of the regimented lifestvie in an “authoritarian” household.
“Quite a few of us grew up with duty rosters posted on the refrigerator,” she writes. “Duties typically scheduled on rosters might include KP, polishing all the shoes in the family, ‘policing the grounds,’ or ‘squaring away’ the quarters. Some families used a demerit system to keep track of imperfections in performance.”
She points out how, at precisely 1700 hours — that’s 5 p.m. to civilians — on every military base across the country, cars stop on the road “and everyone turns in the direction
of the base’s main flag. Out of vision of all but a few, the flag is being lowered for the day.”
The daughter of an Air Force general told Wcrtsch of a typically traumatic experience in moving. “I was attending a small high school in Illinois, and I knew nearly everyone. I v t ,• , active: cheerleader, class officer, head of the French Club and the Pen Club. . then my parents dropped the bomb that we were leaving all this — in the middle of my junior year. To try to establish myself in a new school in a year’s time ... I developed an almost non-< iring attitude. I remember thinking, W ant’s the use?”
Wcrtsch goes on to illustrate the striking psychological similarities among adults who were raised in the military. She compiled observations through six years of research, from which she has discovered numerous patterns of behavior.
“Military brats frequently hold
themselves to impossibly high standards,’’ she writes, “higher than even the sometimes unreasonable expectations they have for those around them.’’ She noticed that the “military brat develops an inability to trust — an inability to relax in a relationship out of fear it will suddenly be yanked away.” And f military brat, “everything is temporary.... If there’s one thing military brats know' how to do, it’s start over.”
Wertsch is a very thorough researcher and a superb storyteller who gives readers an understanding of what it’s like to grow up in the military.
