Skeptical of Soldiers

STORY BY: Cameron Little
YEAR: 1949
LOCATION: Central Manitoba

Cameron speaks of growing up in Central Manitoba, in a town where they had an airfield that trained Commonwealth airmen. When he was 3 or 4, he was driving with his mother and they passed by several soldiers hitchhiking. He asked her why she didn't pick them up. She said, "Cameron, soldiers are very dangerous people". He knew that she was frightened about being assaulted by them. To this day, he's very skeptical of the military and of authority. Thanks for sharing, Cameron.
