Was it Landstuhl, by any chance? When my dad was stationed in SHAPE, Belgium, I visited some places in Germany, and Landstuhl was one of them. I think I visited the base in Ramstein, too, I'm not too sure.Sob story wrote:Being a military brat did have its advantages when I was young, especially as a good chunk of my childhood was on the German bases where the people were much more tight knit and such. So when I was still adjusting I had plenty of people willing to help me out and docs who were used to dealing with people who lost limbs.
I wish I had some sporty battle scars. All I have that's visible is a 10-stitch scar above my right knee, and I prefer long pants so no one sees it. I fell on my head pretty badly under the age of 5 and they almost cut a big hole into my head because of 'internal bleeding' (does that mean the brain? Is that why I'm weird?), almost wish they had.
