Eduardos enrolment in the military

By 
(0 votes)

In 1937 Eduardo enrolled in mandatory military service, an experience of major importance in his life. This gave him the opportunity to discover another social class. Every day he had to face the living reality of those with whom he shared the barracks, and he realized that their lives were very different to the lives of his Catholic family and friends. Eduardo came to the conclusion that the people he was with in the army camp, though de-Christianized and averse to religion, were still keeping a series of gospel values e.g. they rejected lying and hypocrisy, they were open minded to all classes, and they had a sense of friendship.
