What do you get when you mix shimmering snow, tough training, ear ringing fun, naughty songs, swift skiing, and abusive war? The ten mountain division is all that and more. It was harder then imaginable for the soldiers. It contains that the soldiers are very young, 17-19 years old. If I was their family member I would still consider them still a baby; collage wasn’t ever an option because being drafted right after high school didn’t give them a chance. After they got deported to the silent mountains the clouds made from smoke made it’s way into the bodies of the soldiers. To top that, other sicknesses came the area. What made the soldiers even more miserable? The training. Apparently, the people in charge wanted to see how much suffer the soldiers could take, so they made them go in the middle of the forest at a death threatening weather. The trained day and night. At the end of the training it all paid off in many wars; the biggest in Italy. In between all that some FUN occurred. Such as, getting fresh air and soaring on the snow in skis. Finally, singing! Being with your friends, being you, and singing your heart out. It makes you have that comfort feeling I can’t explain. And that is what the ten mountain division is!
