    Money can't buy what makes a person happy all of the time. Some go through a lifetime unhappily I must say trying to figure that out.

    It's his choice but unfortunately, he makes a very large target for any enemy. His uniform is to help conceal him but that is a lot of human to conceal. Ballet and football are not for everyone and neither is military service.
