About This Quiz

If you were thought of as an Army brat, it wasn't because people thought you were a bad kid that was always causing trouble. It was more the fact that one, or both, of your parents, were in the Army, meaning that they were stationed all over the country, and sometimes across the globe. 

And what does mean for their kids? Well, it means they move all over the place. If you were an Army brat who was always packing up boxes and always moving, you would never stay in one place for very long.  You probably had a hard time making close friends, because you were always going from place to place. 

On the other hand, things aren't all that bad for Army brats. You also got to travel and see lots of things that most people don't, and not only that, but you also have the satisfaction of knowing that your parents put their lives on hold because they wanted to serve their country. Did you have a lot of camouflage in your closet? Were you the new kid at school every fall? Take this quiz, and we will try to figure out if you were an Army brat.
