"I have two sons in Ladakh Scouts. We are not in touch these days. As a parent I am not afraid. Had I been scared I wouldn't have sent them to the Army. A nation can't be guarded if one gets afraid of death," the father of soldier T Dorjoi told ANI.Even during the ongoing tensions they remained undeterred. They also said the family is planning to send their third child to the Army. Seeing his brothers protecting the nation, Stanzin, who is preparing himself to join the Ladakh Scouts, said, "I feel proud that my brothers are serving the nation, but I also miss them. I will also join Ladakh Scouts and bring pride to my country and family." This sentiment is common among other families as well.
