I’ve spent a lot of time Googling various versions of “derivation of army brat” in an attempt to find out when the term was first used. Also found one old thread here, but it did not answer the Q. All to no avail. Even Wikipedia went on at great length on the subject without providing that information, unless I missed it in all the verbiage.
Anybody know when, where and how it originated? I’m guessing some time after WWI.
And while I’m at it, anybody know of a good website for searching for the derivation of English words?
