How Larry Boyer Served and Sacrificed for Our Nation

 

Essay Written by Maria Boyer of Kenwood High School
As part of the Clarksville Kiwanis Club’s Memories of Service and Sacrifice Project’s “Interview a Veteran Contest”

At the early age of seventeen, Larry Boyer entered the army as an infantryman. Coming from the small town of Superior, Wisconsin, he had no clue what he was getting into. Security, safety, homely comfort, regular visits with family and friends- he was used to these luxuries. He didn’t know that soon he would be deprived of them. Determined, and self-motivated, the young, inexperienced boy took his chances and began his life as a United States soldier.

Being in the Army required extreme dedication. It consumed so much of his time that there was none left for anything else. Larry would have to work long hours on base, or would be out in the field for days. He wouldn’t be able to see his wife or kids much at all. It didn’t leave ample family time, let alone time for a social life.

As part of the Clarksville Kiwanis Club’s Memories of Service and Sacrifice Project’s “Interview a Veteran Contest”

The military is important. The Air Force, Army, and Marine Corps all work together to keep our country safe. Ever since the attack on September 11th, 2001, our soldiers have been more highly respected and are more essential for our nation to survive. Most of us know at least one soldier. My soldier is my protector. He is my Dad. He joined the military in August of 1998 and has been serving for our country ever since. Some of the things he has sacrificed are time with his family, safety and friends.

My dad, Specialist Zechariah Larson, has been on four deployments for the Army and away from home for a total of over four years. His first time overseas began in March of 2003, when I was almost five. He was gone to Iraq for eight months.
