Project: 10 Year
When I was a young girl, I wanted to get married to a person who wears a uniform. I was always fascinated by cops and military serviceman. I even gave some snacks to the military people if I spotted them on the street. When I was in my early teens, I even wanted to be a pilot in the air force only because they looked cool.
I totally forgot about these somewhat childish wishes. When I met my husband, I didn’t know he was in the air force. Even after about a year since we started dating, I didn’t think about my faded dream. Then, when I was visiting him in Japan, I saw him wearing this uniform for his weekly meeting for the first time.
My heart pounded and my old memories rushed back to me. I was so excited. I told him that my dream came true! Well, just for a quick moment anyway. Now he became a civilian. I don’t see him in any of his uniforms. I demanded him not to throw them away, even though he wasn’t going to.
