Andy's Promise

Andy's Promise

Thirtheen-year-old Andy made a promise to his grandfather and mother: never to abandon the militia, which was their pride and joy. Due to the shortage of youth members Andy has been the youngest member of the club for years now. This means that the militia will come to an end if Andy doesn’t find any new members. But this is easier said than done: the children from Andy’s small town village prefer other hobbies. Still, Andy will not break his promise and he will fight for the future of the militia which he is so proud of. Especially since his grandfather and mother have both passed away.
