A living person can never forget the first Romance of his/her life. My very first romance commenced in adolescence and pertains solely to the Military, wearing a uniform, becoming an officer, fighting for the defence of my country, and ultimately laying life at the altar of my motherland.
MILITARY, MARTIAL, ARMED FORCES, DEFENCE FORCE, and DEFENDERS OF THE FRONTIER comprising of Army, Navy and Air Force are almost synonyms to each other, of or pertaining to the military; befitting or characteristic of a soldier; performed by the defence force of a nation.
But the phenomenon as old as society/nations itself has remained the fantasy of youth, irrespective of time, geography, and generations and this being the one, according to Sigmund Fried “ fantasies are consciously summoned and pursued”.
Well leaving aside the philosophical aspect, this still romance of the younger generation, I intend to indulge my side of the story, inviting Veterans around the globe to share their experiences, comments, and queries and have a lot of fun in days to come.
