Not only was I an Air Force brat, but I married an officer and a gentleman in the Air Force. Been a brat for 67 years!
One fave memory for me was when my husband arrived in Ubon, Thailand to begin his tour flying F-4’s over Vietnam. In unpacking his gear, a tiny baby sock ( our daughter was little then) had gotten stuck on his t-shirt!!
He tacked it up on his wall for the sweet reminder of who was waiting for him…the reunion a few months later was epic…
