Insightful and revealing
19 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What's the toughest question that you are routinely asked by new acquaintances? If you're a military brat, it's probably, "Where are you from?" For us, it's a loaded question and understanding our unique life experience, where we've been, and provides insight into who we are. In my life, with moving from base to base every 2-1/2 to 3 years, and living in two homes (off- and on-base for each station) in that span of time, with going to 18 different schools through high school, with making and breaking friendships every time we moved... it's made a big difference. If you're a military brat, you understand. If you're a military brat, this may be a film worth watching as it may give you insight into who you are and WHY.
