Why is the Dandelion a symbol of the Military Brat?
As a dandelion sheds its spores they scatter far and wide hoping to find soil so it can grow and flourish. The military Brat moves from one place to another on a constant basis whether overseas or within the continental United States always hoping to find a place to call home even for a little while and maybe make a friend that will bond for the time that they are there or maybe for a lifetime. Like a Dandelion the Military Brat is adaptable and yet constantly changing in order to survive. The Dandelion and the Military Brat will always have a connection as long as there is wind and resilience.
