You've selected a good subject and situation, and described it well. I enjoyed the read very much so.

I think this was the first time I felt positive conotations about the word "gossip" this week. For some reason, it sounds good here... nostalgic even.

Having been there, I can tell you, it's true.

You captured the homesickness very well!

Excellent micro-decription!

This was like a photograph! And it really drew me in, as I imagined troops being so far from home. Well done.

Homesickness is the strongest motivator for gossip. You captured this well. Have a nice weekend.

I, too, liked the positive impression I got from the use of the word "gossip."

Liked the use of naive, too.
