Every year, young people, for a variety of reasons, walk into a recruiting office and join the military.
The first stop is basic training
Where they find out that they’re not very good at things.
Which they’re told constantly by those impossibly competent drill instructors yelling at them.
Causing them to wonder why they joined
But eventually they get it right
Sometimes, they end up going to war
Although they hoped it wouldn’t happen
Some come home changed
while others don’t come home at all
Today is the day we honor those who served, and continue to serve. Happy Veterans Day!
