You really think brats are the true heroes?

I do.

Brats get no choice in the matter. They are the only nonvolunteers.

They also experience a lot of loss, which they can do nothing about.

They are forced to mature and be supportive of something which is opposite to any and all human instincts; the placing of a family member in harm's way with no immediate danger to the family presented.

Lastly the military's missions can't be accomplished if the family situation is in chaos. Brats largely control that and they know that in tough times Mom or Dad doesn't need to be worrying about things at home when he should be keeping his or her head down.
