My granfathers nephew was 14 and cobbled a uniform together and then tried to get on a train taking men to boot camp.Exile1981
Political Correctness and our "educational" system have conspired to turn all urban area young men into pussies!Only in rural areas do you find young men who actually have masculine traits.
My grandfather quit school at 17 just to enlist in the army. He participated in the D-Day invasion, the Battle of the Bulge and the liberation of Dachau. America needs to remember to courage, sacrifice and selflessness of that generation. We may never see it again.
