Jeez that's a child. My kids are 15 and 16 and still need me to tell them when to wash. Watched saving private Ryan on BluRay with Daniel (my son) it think the beach landing had an impact!
undoubtedly a different time. I suspect more young people would be capable of enlisting and doing the task if required in a global time of need, thank goodness we don't forsee that happening on the horizon at present.
14 years old ...thats above and beyond.
Lets hope our kids and their kids never have to.
