Hi, after reading the majority of post i to am scared and skitish of my son leaving for the marines. to be honest i am a single father of a 19 yr.old and i still have all the worries a mother would for there child. at first it was all exciting to see him go to MEPS and pass with flying colors. now i wait for his ship date and constantly think and worry if this was the right decision.

He will be fine. The hostilities in Iraq are over and Afghanistan is winding down. His odds of getting killed in action are a lot less than they would be if he was enlisting a few years ago.
