Moments after my childhood friend / next-door neighbor, Jeff (black shirt), was sworn into the Vermont Air National Guard by his older brother, Jason (who's a recruiter for the Guard). Healthcare and a $20,000 signing bonus are hard to pass up when shopping for a new life, especially these days. Boot camp starts in February. Eventually he'll be loading bombs onto these. Fresh starts all around.
