Carries `Army brat' title with pride



Re the Jan. 1 letter by Susan Winstead, "Chafes at use of `Army brat' term":

I am a 70-year-old "Army brat" and am very proud of it. I was raised in the old Army which was different from now.

I was born in an Army hospital and hope to die in one. We went to school in a large Army truck with a guard standing on the back step to keep us from standing and falling. We Girl Scouts marched behind caissons to the funeral of a soldier.

"Army brats" are a distinctive group.

Betty Hurnyak, Grovetown
