Since many years ago – from when I learnt what military service is- I always knew that my father will have become fifty-nine before my graduation and so, as the only son of the family, I will be exempted from military service. In all those years I dreamed my life plan based on this assumption. Few months before my father's promised birthday, the law abruptly changed. Fifty-nine became sixty-five and then seventy. I was liable, liable to devote two years of my life to what I didn’t imagine even in my wildest dreams. Thus, in order to face what is waiting for me I will steal a march on it by documenting my future memories as a soldier.
