Sample text

How can you be terrified of an alleged new draft . . and opposed to ROTC’s soliciting first-rate volunteers? . A few weeks ago, I spoke [in] an informal debate at 24. Nat Jacks, “Panel Speakers Link ROTC to War With Iraq,” Columbia Spectator, April 1, 2003. 25. Nick Rosenthal, “ROTC, You Are (Still) Not Wanted Here,” Columbia Spectator, February 16, 2005. “NOT FOR PEOPLE LIKE US” ✯ 49 Yale, and an imposing middle-aged man with fierce white hair came up afterward to ask me where I got the nerve to support a president who sends young soldiers to their deaths?

My son has become the sort of man I’ve always liked best, a member of the so-called greatest generation, though “his” war wasn’t the Second World War but the ambiguously misnamed War on Terror. Nevertheless my son has become that sort of steady, self-confident, self-deprecating, all-round good guy I’ve admired. He seems effortlessly comfortable in his own skin. I had assumed that those sorts of people just didn’t get made anymore, that it was a generational thing. I was wrong. “They” still do make men and women of character and inner strength.

A 17-year-old boy tried to explain to the white-haired man (in his straightforward, soft-spoken way) that those soldiers had chosen to be where they were; had understood and accepted the dangers; loved life just as much as the man did, but had different ideas about how to live it. The 17-year-old mentioned that he and a friend planned to join the Marines when they finished college. . I had a stake in the argument: the 17-year-old is my son. I don’t know whether he’ll make it into the Marines; we’ll be proud of him either way.
