Either I am getting very old or the departing solders lately are way younger than they used to be. There are some boys who may as well be in high school.

Please read 'soldiers', not 'solders'. My bad English cannot take the blame on this one:)
Alan, it's one of those haiku that invite you to read them again. :)

These two soldiers were in their late 30s or early 40s hence talking about spotty teenagers in general, not just in the military. ;-)

It was funny to hear them talk like that. ;-)
