As an Air Force BRAT, I experienced the best and worst of military life. My life was strict and structured. I dared not make waves because this would affect Dad's next promotion and career. Shifting from school to school turned me into a shy, insecure person. Friends, home, and life seemed temporary--only worth living for two or three years (until the next move). We, the military brats, were often considered outcasts. Thank you, Donna Musil, for putting together a tremendously moving documentary. The interviews, film clips, home photos, all enlighten the audience about our plight. I understand now that I am not LOST or ALONE.
