Am from military family, and i am very proud of it. I served as well, and being only man in my family without fighting experience. My folks paid blood for independence and freedom. My father, both of cousins were heavy wounded. Uncle fall. Even far relatives from Australia came to fight. No one thought oh america will do our jobs.
Anyway i never understand taiwanese and their hate for own military. I know like 10 young taiwanese and all of em avoid serving military. When i ask who will defend your country, they ignored me. Most of them joined sunflower demonstrations. One of the reason why we went back to europe with my wife, is i do not wanna have son in this environment. Being scared and totally uninterested in military, military technology, brotherhood, sport outdoor… Come on, like there is not more to life than being geek and earning money.
Father was shocked at marriage party when asked my brother in law when he will serve. Dude just responsed he served civil. Lol father comments what wrong with him, if he is dissables somehow or what. Later found out none of wife cousins served. He asked me what kind of family is this, i just response typically taiwanese. He lost a lot of respect for taiwanese than. He came wit idea, he will found breave taiwanese resisting communism lol.
Really funny, never met a guy, who is into military, never met neither one, who wanna start own company, business. Am talking young guys like 20 to 25. What will be from rock longterm?
