Marc Curtis, a "Military Brat" himself, started this website as a way to help long lost friends reuinite.  When I joined the site in 1997 there were fewer than 10,000 entries.  Now, in 2005, there are 73,773 entries from military dependents, including 23 from Wakkanai Air Station.  You can read profiles free when you register, but in order to help defray the costs, Marc has had to charge a fee for the privilege of obtaining email access to your compatriots.  This is a worthy project and Marc could use your financial support.  Make a visit today.
