Author Contributes to American Military Family Museum

Sends portion of her book, Once a Brat, Always a Brat for display

Fort Worth, TX, /PRNewswire-iReach/ —

Fort Worth Author, Marilyn Celeste Moris has recently contributed to the new American Military Famiily Museum for its display on May 6, 2014.

As we are increasingly aware, over 1000 of our WWII veterans are dying every day, leaving their grown “Military Brats” to tell their stories of being deployed overseas immediately after WWII.  Ms. Morris was in that movement, at eight years of age, receiving her very own orders from The War Department.

Her recently re-released book, Once a Brat, Always a Brat, has been described as “part travelogue, part therapy session” and the second half, containing other Military Brats; stories, has been called by Dennis Campbell of BratCon Radio, as “a field manual for understanding Military Brats.”

Ms. Morris explains why this subculture claims a fondness for the term, “Brat”, as itt does not connote “an unruly child,” but is rather taken from the British Military, who stamped papers with the iniitials, “BRAT'” meaning British Regiment Attached Traveler.

She relates how the family adapted to somewhat primitive quarters, with no running water, sporadic electricity, wood-burning stoves and an icebox.

How she, and other Military Brats, adapted from an ancient Oriental culture  one year to exploring castles in  Bavaria in the next, is the focus of Once a Brat, Always a Brat  which is available on Amazon.com and Kindle:
