That is just what we need, smelly soldiers. What hideous odor do you suggest? The smell of old sneakers with old socks tucked into them?

But, nobody sprays their soldiers with the scent of coconut.

Maybe because soldiers smelling like large coconuts would not instill much fear in the enemy.

I called again and lied about when I called last, who I am, what country I reside in and my age, I told them I was 95. They still said I was too old.

Well, if that didn't work, I don't know what will. They seem to be very rigorous. Too much so if you ask me.

Yes, definitely. For a second I thought you might be able to present yourself as him, but they are probably already keeping an eye on him as a potential candidate.

I am sure he is heavily monitored but he could probably slip through all that surveillance.

Why should he slip through? They want him in their forces. And Tu too.
