This is a trailer to for "BRATS RAW: Kristofferson & Schwarzkopf," the uncut interviews of two American icons about their "military brat" childhoods from the award-winning documentary, "BRATS: Our Journey Home" (see bratsfilm.com).
Kris Kristofferson is an Air Force Brat. The late General Norman Schwarzkopf was raised in the Army. Both sons of soldiers, they also went on to join the military and raise their own brats. In one segment, General Schwarzkopf describes his adventures in Iran, where he lived with his father just after World War II, before attending a DoD school in Heidelberg and an international school in Switzerland. In another, Kris recalls the difficulty he had telling his mother he was turning down a teaching assignment at West Point to try his hand at songwriting in Nashville. "BRATS Raw: Kristofferson & Schwarkzopf" is a rare glimpse into the childhoods and personal lives of two military brats who have helped shape America's future.
