A documentary film about military brats will be screened this week in Hampton Roads.
U.S. Army brat and filmmaker Donna Musil brings her "BRATS: Our Journey Home"
to MacArthur Memorial in Norfolk at 6:30 tonight and to Newport News Marriott at City Center at 3 p.m. Sunday.
Musil will answer questions after each showing.
The film explores the struggles faced by the children of military personnel who grow up on bases around the world.
More than 700,000 adult brats are living in Virginia, according to Musil.
Appearing in the documentary are Kris Kristofferson, an Air Force brat who narrated and donated songs to the production,
and retired Army Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf.
