Can I Have a Volunteer from the Audience, Please.
Why yes, the helmet is a bit heavy, isn't it? Don't worry, this won't last long...
I was invited by the daughter of a Soldier's Angel to help with her school project. She was doing a comparison of World War I soldiers and those of today. While I talked, I had a young volunteer from the class put on as much of my gear as he could fit. He was a good sport about it.
The whole class was rather good natured about me coming in, actually. The teachers were nice to me, and the young lady's Mom was very kind as well. All in all, I'd have to say it was a very rewarding way to spend my mid-day.
