What an absolutely wonderful short story! Like the author, I grew up as a military brat. My own brother spent 11 years in the Marines. I didn't have nearly as much tragedy in my life as Mr. Hendricks, but it's clear that this has helped shape his narrative, Rite of Passage. It was truly an unexpected ride that I didn't see coming. I don't want to spoil the premise by giving away the story's coolest element, but I do want to encourage anyone to read this; especially if you were in the military (or have a fondness for such).
I'm not ashamed to admit that tears came to my eyes. That's a sign of a great story, in my opinion. I FELT something. At the end of the day, that's why we read; to escape and to feel something. Great Storytellers are masters at making us forget where we are, and experience something from another perspective. That's what happened here.
I'll definitely be on the lookout for more from Jonathon Hendricks! A+
