My son is a soldier, but he is not currently stationed in a war zone.
You would need to decide if you are going to do a compare/contrast between a soldier who is in a war zone as compared to a soldier who is working in the U.S. on a base.
Some things will be basically the same.
- Wake up, shower, shave, dress etc.
- Report for duty
This is where things take a radical change. What is the assignment? Will the soldier go to a desk job? or will the soldier go out in a patrol and perhaps face hostile attack? Will the soldier assist a family by providing food and water? Will the soldier be assigned duty to help in fighting a forest fire in the U.S?
- Return to base or go home
- Eat, Rest and relax
- Do it all again
