Soldier! At ease!


Finally I am a free man! Yesterday, after one whole year, I completed my military service. I must say it was a long year. I try to remember the first day in the military camp one year ago and it kind of hard. I just remember the desperation of leaving all my life behind to goto something unknown. Family, friends, jobs, ambitions.. everything. I was feeling that I have nothing to do with guns and uniforms. Why should I be obligated to to this? It was unfair. Anyway even if I did serve most of my time near my hometown, the military service was a very upsetting time. It probably had to do with the sensation of slavery that the army gave me. It kind of hard to flush your personality down the toilet and be a dummy private at my age. It is also that I never felt that I was important there. That I was doing something useful. Unless if being a soldier means that you are the charlady of the army.

Anyway there where also good times. Fun times. And it gave me the chance to meet some very interesting people. People that now are very good friends of mine.. people I would never had the chance to meet otherwise. Of that, I’m happy…

Also as its in the nature of man to only keep the good times, feeling were stir up yesterday the moment we left camp. This is weird considering the million times that I cursed being in there. But that is the way it is…

Anyway am a citizen again! Good citizens to all other soldiers out there! Life is now ahead of us, lets make the best of it.

p.s. A big thank you to all those that put up with me the last year. Thank you for all the support, I needed it. And for those that couldn’t put up with it, no hard feelings. Its comprehended…

army, military,
