My youngest son joined the Army this past week. He took the Oath yesterday and will be going off to basic training in January. I am so very proud of him! But, I am also scared. He will be enlisted for 8 years as a helicopter mechanic. He hopes to make a career out of it like my Father did (he was in the Army over 20 years and I grew up an Army brat).
Right now I am not sure of how I feel. I am proud, VERY PROUD. But, if he gets deployed over-seas, I will worry every minute that he is gone. I know that this is what he wants to do with his life but, it doesn't stop the worry. Are their any other Mother's of soldiers out their with advice ?
Hugz to all!
