Liz Mounger Liz Mounger from I am from everywhere, and no where, my family is from Albuquerque, NM wrote on February 5, 2016 at 9:55 am
Friday, 4/13/12, 11:44 AM I grew up in a military family, spending my childhood moving around. I've been to so many schools, and even another country. It was a hard life, but it was rewarding as well. Most people always talk about the soldiers but forget about their families. The families make sacrifices as well. I am proud to be an Army brat, and I am proud of my father for choosing to serve our country.

Sunday, 4/8/12, 1:49 PM Born in 1962 at the US Army Hospital in Heidelberg. Spent 1962, 1964-1980 in Karlsruhe, Germany. 1980- Dec 1981 in Munich, Germany, 1982-2003 US Air Force. Now I live with my family in Greenwood (subburb of Indianapolis)Indiana and I work for the Dep of Veteran Affairs. I must say, my time in Germany, especially Karlsruhe, was by far, the best time of my life. I met so many great people, and I will never forget those days. This website is something special. Thanks Circe!!

Sunday, 4/8/12, 5:27 AM Other than family, there is no greater bond that is as strong as the one I share with those who lived part of their lives in Karlsruhe, Germany. To see how important that was and still is to people after all these years is touching to say the least. Life was simpler and the negatvity and inconsiderate behavior of the world today was non-existent. I am proud to be a "military brat" and I am proud to be a member of the Karlsruhe Knights family...FOREVER!!

Wednesday, 3/28/12, 5:44 PM Looking good. The possibilities and connections are endless. It would be nice to take the first part of my military life as a dependent and then DOD employee for 20 and see how it connects with the last half of my life and work with the VA. Wow! What a journey.

Sunday, 12/11/11, 1:09 PM I am proud to be an American and Army Brat. Our family was one of the first dependent families to be sent overseas after WWII. We were able to assimilate into the German culture and experience the world. I attended Stuttgart Elementary KG at the Stuttgart Kaserne, where a building was set up as an elementary school. My father, now deceased, retired after 20 years of service. Thank you for this wonderful site.

Tuesday, 9/6/11, 8:31 AM Thanks for an interesting remembrance. Our greatest reward as educators is to see the growth and development of our students and the great job performed by teachers from our staffs and by our colleagues. Memorable are the international programs which were offered to our overseas "Brats" and the sense of one world working together on this beautiful planet we share with all creatures.

Wednesday, 8/3/11, 4:39 PM Greetings just found your website via the University of Maryland Munich site. Loved looking at all the photos. I am sure I have some that I can submit. I lived in Wiesbaden, Landstuhl, Heidelberg, Frankfurt and Stuttgart. Graduated from Frankfurt in '72 but attended K town and Heidelberg also. It might take me a while but I will scan some photos and submit them. We also lived in Bangkok and I was born in Asmara, Eritrea.

Monday, 7/25/11, 8:43 PM Really enjoyed the site. It is about time that there is a site for the military family and especially for the "military brats". This site brought back some good times for this "Air Force Brat"!

Saturday, 7/16/11, 2:19 PM What a wonderful resource we have in the Museum of the American Military Family! We are all indebted to founder Circe Woessner, and to all who help and support her in this invaluable project. This web site is impressive in its conceptualization, its scope and its vision. Even at this early stage it speaks so well to the contributions and lived experience of military families through the centuries, and its excitement is contagious. I defy anyone to spend five minutes with this site without feeling proud of the extraordinary lives and service of military families. Thank you, all!

Wednesday, 7/6/11, 10:39 AM My compliments to you Circe ! It certainly took me back to those military years of being a military wife. It was an experience I will hold dearly. Thanks for sharing such beautiful memories and putting this wonderful website together !

Tuesday, 7/5/11, 4:46 PM What a great site. I enjoyed looking at the old photos. It brought back memories on my youth as an Air Force brat. Civilian children didn't have anything on us. Moving to a new base was always and adventure. I feel sorry for those people who did not move every 3-4 years.

Thursday, 5/26/11, 8:27 PM I loved looking at all the pictures of Karlsruhe, I have always considered it my "hometown" since I never really had one. I was there twice, from 1964-spring of 1966 and fall of 1966-winter of 1967. When we moved to Kaiserslautern between being stationed in Karlsruhe and then Pforzheim (I still got to go to school in Karlsruhe)I felt like my world had ended. You never saw a happier teenager than me when I found myself back in Karlsruhe! Loved being a brat!

Sunday, 5/1/11, 5:30 AM I was a military wife for 12 years. I liked moving to new places, and we lived in Germany for 4 years. My husband didn't like the military, but joined the Air Force for education, training, and a job. A couple years before he got out, he asked me if I'd like to join the military. Since at that point he hated the military, so when he asked, I said, "Why, do you hate me?" But, I met with a Reserve recruiter and decided it sounded like what I had been looking for. I loved it so much I stayed in until I retired!

Thursday, 4/28/11, 12:17 PM Thanks for putting this up. There's nothing quite like growing up on Base. It's hard to explain it, too. People sort of understand how different it is for adult soldiers, but don't have a clue what's it like to be 5 years old and living in an American community overseas. It was fun when I was 5, even more fun when I was 15. At least I got to go with my Dad, I didn't have to sit and wait.
