I had a conversation with my stepdaughter, who is enlisted military. Something she told me I just can’t get out of
my head: that she has been told she was
“selfish” to join the armed forces. SELFISH to enlist. The main rationale for this criticism, as far
as I can tell, is that she is a MOTHER.
And enlisted military are sometimes required to LEAVE TOWN. Did you know that? That our soldiers can’t just sit around
hometown USA and collect a paycheck?
This gave me a big old brain hole where I am trying to comprehend the
reasoning. She is divorced, with a 50/50
custody arrangement. Which according to
some people is also SELFISH. So let’s try to figure out why a woman who
wants to serve her country and doesn’t provide 24/7, 365 childcare is somehow
“selfish”, shall we???
