By request of @AwesomeIvysaurGirl34 . I will attempt to follow through as much as I can, but I would love some help from YOU, the reader. I will sometimes (often) suffer from writer's block and disinterest! If you enjoy what I've written, even in this short post, encourage me and give me ideas! It's all appreciated, even criticism. I will post as often as I write. A continuation of "The Man in the Coffee Shop", found in the forums.  A few (a lot) entrees are not included  due to laziness. December 7, 1941 Well, they’ve done it. Japan has bombed Pearl Harbor. I’ve been praying for much of the day for the families of those poor soldiers. I’ve been wondering if perhaps I should join the fight, though I might not have a choice soon enough. Drafting is sure to begin soon, as it won’t be long until Roosevelt declares war. It’s only been… what, three years?... and I feel this war has gone on long enough.   January 1, 1942 Happy New Year! Not very happy for me, though. My draft card came in today. I kind of knew it was inevitable, but… a man can hope, can’t he? Have to go pick up my uniforms now. That’s all for today   January 20, 1942 First day of Boot Camp. Yay… It was already the most exercise of my life. We ran a couple miles (I’ve never ran more than one), and I can tell my commander doesn’t like me. Lieutenant Michaels is his name. Been called out more than once by Michaels in front of everyone, and the food’s awful. But there’s this really cute secretary of his that I couldn’t catch the name of, but I already saw all the other recruits goggling at her. Pathetic, ain’t it? Talked to the guys and half of them are married already. It’s around 9:00, though I should say 2100? I think? Military time is confusing. But, the beds are a bit more comfortable than I expected. Actually, I don’t know what I expected. I don’t know the first thing about war, except a few stories from my grandpapy. He did some pretty amazing stuff back in the Great War. That smear right there is my chuckling and disturbing the pen. It’s just, they said the Great War was the “War to end all wars,” and here we are again. There’s nothing new under the sun, and human nature doesn’t change.
