“The year is 2008 and my son Tristan has been sworn in as a marine. Following successful completion of the training, the next step is deployment into a warzone to gain some ‘real’ experience as a soldier. Nevertheless, this only natural ambition became the cause of my greatest anxiety: I couldn’t get rid of the image of two men coming to my door with that dreadful news all soldier’s mothers fear”. - text from book by Claire Felicie.
