It was the 3rd day of my job that I got the chance to ask one of the marines who were role playing villagers. His name was “Jonathan”, who stayed in one of the housing structures that neighbored by my family’s home within the town. He revealed that he was currently Corporal, who has finished his first 4 years since enlisting at the age of 18 and chosen to work as a “role player” for the time being before re-enlisting. The reason that he enlisted was due to the fact that innocent people, specifically friends and family were hurt at the Boston Marathon bombing and he lived near where it happened in 2013. He stated that he has been married for 3 years and just became a father to a daughter just recently, which has himself thinking to work 6 or more years to get his child to college instead enlisting into the military like what he and his parents as well as grandparents did. I was shocked, yet enthusiastically amazed that there were people much younger than I was, having spouses and kids this early. He also stated about the stress and sadness of being far away from his wife, who lives in their house upon the base. For example, if his wife who works off base and also wants to make plans with him to go somewhere or do something, the plan may be called off by a sudden notification that he has to immediately leave for training or deployment and that leads to disappointment. He states that they live in an area with houses that consist of other military families, which he does say there is a community among the spouses and children left behind from those who deploy overseas. With my eyes opened wide, I thanked him for servicing and the conversation we had as my world grew even more while on my job.
