I didn't know Woodside residents did things like enlist in the war after graduation.
Well, it does not say say anything about graduating.
Or for that matter, a deferment.
Do you think his parents will fly him first class to London, then on to North Africa?
Really nice the way Woodside kids do things for their country. I know a friend of my was killed on a highway north of the Sahara.
Larry Blyden was his name.Interesting question, SportsFan.

I DID read the WEB LINK and find his cause a noble one which might teach him a lot about the world and its people.
If he enjoys sports and running as much as he does, this will really be an eye opener if he has any background in poli/sci in his studies.
I wish more kids would travel and learn about life outside of San Mateo and its singularly sheltered lifestyle.
Good luck to you, Nibbi.
