About: James (Jim) Kidd
I was born at Fort Lee, Virginia. We moved to Karlsruhe before I was 9 months old. We lived in Karlsruhe and then Mannheim before my father retired. Currently, I'm a DOA engineer at Redstone Arsenal. I am interested in the social aspects of growing up a military brat, as well as how to work with and prepare future Brats for integrating into 'normal' civilian life. I also enjoy writing and reading about other's experiences as a Brat, most noteably how it has impacted their view of the world, when compared to people who grew up never leaving the United States.
