Mom – Day 288
It must be difficult for some of our soldiers to try and live somewhat of a normal life and taking on so much responsibility. I mean, our soldiers who are under 21 (which many are) can fight but they can’t drink. They have little room for error when they are called to perform a task and yet many are just learning how to take care of their bills. They are grown-ups and yet they are still trying to figure out who they are. The military makes one grow up fast because you have to but it almost cheats them of their development. I know that our soldiers tend to appreciate life more and many of the things we take for granted but what a price.
