On an email list I get for missionary kids (MKs), someone posted the trailer for a new movie entitled "BRATS: Our Journey Home." It's billed as "the first documentary on growing up military."

I am not a military brat (what a horrible name!), but I did grow up as the child of missionaries, and as I watched the trailer, I could certainly see all kinds of parallels between the two. Both grow up in a country different from their passports (at least, MKs almost always do, and brats often do as well), both are the children of people dedicated to a higher cause.

As the person who posted the link asked, when is someone going to make a documentary about MKs?

At this site you can watch the trailer.
