pre-enlistee

The letter arrives just before he turned 13.

He’s a pre-enlistee now, and is officially on the Government's radar.

Any time he leaves Singapore for over three months, we need to inform them.

The boy has started on the road to becoming a soldier.

The next five years or so will just flash past.

A whisper of terror slakes up my spine when I open the letter, but at the same time I thiknk Day will do very fine. 

He might even love the Army and just like what it did for his father, it might even make him stronger in body and mind.
