Imagine being the mother of a 4-week-old baby, and already receiving mail from the army on his behalf. Then imagine opening that envelope to discover that your son had been ordered to report for duty within 10 days.
I imagine I would've been pretty frightened at first -- "why are they taking my child? Is it some kind of strange military experiment?"
But fortunately, before anything could get out of hand, the army realized their mistake, and called the family before any hard was done. Apparently it was as simple as a clerk entering an incorrect birth date into their database.
At least it'll make for a fun addition to the baby book.
