My eldest son entered the Japan Self Defence Force after his graduation...
The photo above is their hostle..and training base...,the open ceremony of the new batch of intake for 2008...,some of their training excerisce and thier basic learning centre...
He will have to go for their training for two years and stayed at their hostle,then he will be posted elsewhere in Japan or overseas...
It is a bit sad to see him leave the house with his lauggage..but also a bit happy for him,as it is his dream to enter the army...
Army life might be hard,lets just hope he will try his best to go through the basic training which will last two years...
