So, my son joined the Army last week... He graduates from community college in two weeks, so he will have an Assoc. Degree when he goes to Basic.. I always knew he would join the military, but didn't know how, when or what branch... It took him a while to take the step because his grandfather is a Korean War Veteran, and he didn't want to 'scare' his GrandDaddy :) I'm really proud of him.. And, I'm very nervous.. But I know he has thought about this a great deal and at 22, he knows what he wants to do and I support him 100%. Its just a weird feeling knowing in 5 months, he will be gone. Pretty much GONE.. He's looking to make a career of it, so there is not telling where he will be stationed... I know he's going special forces track, and for that he'll have about 2 years of solid training.. At least we aren't THAT far from Georgia. :) Really hits home that this will probably be the last Christmas he will have here at home for a LONG time.... :/
