One of the biggest changes that Jethro goes through is the change in his attitude towards the war and towards issues in general outside of the farm.  From his beginning as the innocent boy who has heard of various events around the nation but never shown much interest, he changes to a relatively mature and inquisitive young man.  As he learns more and more about the true nature of things, particularly the war, he begins to make judgments about the right and wrong of things and be aware of how events even far away events actually have deep effects on his life there on the farm.
