My son will be leaving for fort benning for BCT on august 4th, I am so afarain I cant understand why he chose infantry, I as a single mom has raised him to go for what he wants and that wnything he wants is at arms reach he just has to work for it. after being denied for small things two years in a row they called him back and now he is enlisted full time. My heart is breaking I am so afraid that he will be doing this for the next few years . I have never been away from him his entire 21 years of life, and this will be a big adjustment for me and him I am so afraid of how I will take this once he is officially gone. I was pretty upset at first but now just more scared than ever it feels as though I am losing my right hand my bestfriend the only one true person that will always be mines!! I am more scraed that I wont be able to cook him breakfast or go see him sleeping in the middle of the night but I know I have to put on my grown up hat and be his mom and stand behind him as a proud mom of a young man that made a decision in his life and give him all my blessings and support please pray with me for my sons safety and long Gevity of life and prosperous decisions that will help him grow into the soldier that he has always wanted to be since he was 4 years old. I am so afraid and really don't want him to have to carry any baggage of worry about me while he is gone I pray that god dives me the strength to smile with him and enjoy him and help me through this because he needs my support and not to have to worry about me but focus on his training and his future so that he can be the best man he can be and be army strong
