Dennis Campbell and Pat Caves to launch BRATCON Radio on Veteranâ€™s Day at 4 PM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Variety Channel
Online PR News – 04-November-2010 – – Phoenix, AZ ( onlineprnews ) November 03, 2010 - No, not the kind of brats born into monied families with a silver spoon in their mouth and always whining about something! Weâ€™re talking about â€śMilitary Bratsâ€ť â€“ the sons and daughters of current and former service members and other federal government employees who were and are currently posted at military or government installations in the U.S. and around the world.
American BRATS, an acronym borrowed from the British (British Regimental Attached Traveler), were first created following World War II. The rebuilding of Europe and Japan required large concentrations of military service members and other government employees to be stationed for extended periods of time, in a multitude of locations around the world at such military posts and bases. The US Government then created the policy and practice of having â€śon baseâ€ť housing, schools and related community infrastructure for families; spouses and children, who were now accompanying the service member on site. Generations of individuals began living the adjunct life of government and military service. A new and relatively unknown sub-culture of our society of â€śmilitary bratsâ€ť was created. Many of the â€śbratsâ€ť who experience this lifestyle, found a special bond exists among them, and arguably the experiences they have living overseas has caused them to be exposed to many experiences which make them more worldly and adaptable than most of the American population. Thus, a sub-culture of â€śbratsâ€ť desiring a connection to other members of their sub-culture is the result and the inspiration for creating a way for members of this sub-culture to connect with one another.
Two brats, Dennis Campbell of Phoenix, Arizona and Pat Caves of Jacksonville, Florida, have co-created â€śBRATCONâ€ť â€“â€śThe Brat Connection.â€ť In addition to the radio show, they provide forums for brats to connect via their website, http://www.Bratcon.com, blog at http://Bratcon.com/blog, Twitter and Facebook page. In addition to listening live, listeners will also be able to revisit shows through the downloadable archive of past shows via iTunes.
