I'm not sure what to say. My mom called to day to say that my littlest brother (he's 6'2" , 20 years old and a fireman) has enlisted in the US Army and will be reporting for Boot Camp on April 5. It's not a sudden thing--I've known it was probable since Thanksgiving--but now it's real.
And I feel like I've been punched in the gut.
My father served in the Air Force during Vietnam. I've always been a supporter of the troops. Always. I admire so much about America's military men and women. I have supported this current military action.
Or I thought I did.
But the potential price just went up.
