The Denver Post was given permission by the Army to photograph a local kid from high school graduation, through recruitment, through training, and through deployment. The photo-essay is here.
Some “spoilers” after the jump:
- Kids at that age aren’t that much different. I especially like that in the process of this photo essay, he was engaged twice to two different girls, and in one case, was engaged and broken up only a few days later.
- Even when the army owns a teenage kid’s ass, he still thinks he can get away with breach of duty/responsibility.
