The Olive Depression



In the weeks leading up to enlistment, the imminent loss of his personal freedom begins to dawn on Johnny. His friends commiserate, while his parents and fellow churchgoers tell him to keep a good attitude and stay out of trouble. All the while, there is a girl he cannot get out of his mind. Johnny finds himself entering National Service as conflicted as he was before.
