So I interviewed my friends mom who was in the army.
She’s pretty narcissistic so it was hard getting her to actually cooperate.
I asked her what was the five things she hoped I was learning in History class and her response was, “well I just hope you’re learning how BEEP up your country is.”
She lost a baby after they wouldn’t give her a leave from work after being told by the doctor that she needed to be on bed rest and she just hasn’t be right about it since. She just went on into why she hated the military and why people shouldn’t go.
She said she hoped that I learn that this place is all about control.
She told me she had hoped that I was getting factual information and not just reading a textbook.
I don’t know how well that question went, but I can say it was very interesting hearing her story.
