Growing Up Army (Soft Cover) By Robert Heath Sr.
Experiencing the differences in how other people lived has always been one of the great benefits all of us Brats express when talking about growing up Army.
When Dick Heath proposed to Jinny, his girlfriend of two years, offering to provide her with her own kindergarten-sized family if she would quit teachers’ college to be his wife, he wasn’t kidding. As the nine members of said kindergarten arrived in several places around the US and the world, they proved to be an Army Brat Platoon of curious, energetic, and fun-loving Brats. None of the foreign places to which Dick was stationed slowed down the Brats’ adventures, even as they witnessed historically significant events all over the globe.
In this hilarious and engaging military memoir, Robert R. Heath Sr. recounts his time growing up as the third of nine Army Brats and learning that survival comes in many shapes and sizes.
