So emotional

My son leaves for basic training tomorrow- Fort Leonardwood, then MP school. He is my baby, last to leave the nest. My daughter, 2 years older just left in May. It was so much easier to let her go, she got married to a wonderful man after 7 years of dating. My son is happier than I have ever seen but the hurt just turns my gut. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks from Nebraska

Hang in there! He will be encouraged to contact you on arrival at basic, but then it may be a bit before he is allowed to contact you again. You can contact ft benning to get his contact info to start sending letters to him prior to that.

You will be fine! Congratulations on raising two healthy kids who have their heads on straight!

Also, thank you for your son's service!

Time to find a pass time that you enjoy, and get started on your new life as a successful parent of adults 😋
