I had to smile when I read this - I am also an Army brat - Was born in Buffalo New York - Then went to Hawaii when I was 2 months old - Then to various places - Went to 13 schools before I graduated - The longest time I ever lived in one place was 4 years - Still have the travel bug and have moved at least 50 times in my 45 years !!!!

I've been a few places that it's good to be from!

Also, a few places have demanded I be from!

I was born in Bulawayo, Rhodesia and spent the next years trailing behind my dad who worked for Rhodesia Railways as he changed jobs every few years and we moved with him.

Moved to England in 1980 and have stayed here since.

Yes, there are many people who are US citizens who aren't born in states. Believe it or not, the US has territories. Please correct me if my information is old (I haven't had to use some of these little gray cells for awhile), but in addition to DC not being a state, we have Guam, part of Samoa, Puerto Rico, and part of the Virgin Islands. Yes, all Americans!

Yes, I definitely differentiate between where I was born, and where I'm from. Like all the military brats and others who were born to the footloose, I'm from where I choose to be from.

I think a lot of us do that. Even though I was born in San Diego and lived there until I was almost 15 (with a 1 1/2 year move to Missouri when I was 8-10), I consider Vista (in North San Diego County) to be my hometown. It is where my daughter and grandkids, my dad, my sister, and my nephew live, and it is where I raised my daughter. It is home.

I was born in Hildesheim, wich is a small town about 15miles south of Hannover.
My home is where my parents live, where I grew up, a village 8miles west of Hildesheim and 10miles south-west of the part of Hannover we live now.
