This is not actually a question but more of reply to a previous question & I am placing it in the same category that they did so that they can see my reply. I am the mother of an active duty soldier and the mother of an Army Veteran who served 5 years in the Army. I am also the proud wife of a Veteran...he spent 2 1/2 years in the Navy and 2 1/2 years in the Army before being medically discharged (he did NOT want that and even after 20+ years hates that he wasn't able to stay in and be career military). I spent the 1st 5 years of my marriage as a Military Wife. How could I NOT be proud of my husband and my 1st and 3rd born sons (I am also VERY proud of my other 2 sons, 1 who decided to go to the School of Hard Knocks and the other who is in college to become a Pediatric Nurse)? They made serious choices and they sacrificed/sacrifice a lot to serve their country and then they have to deal with morons who treat them like crap. I am VERY proud of my Veterans and my Soldier. Thankfully I have only had to deal with a couple of nasty people and my reply is always "If you don't stand behind our troops, feel free to stand in front of them!!".
My husband in 1985 when he was 19 ( I fell in love with him while he was in Navy bootcamp, he was in my brother company. He stayed in and I didn't...I had fallen in love)
My husband in 1988 when he was 22 and in Army BCT (the pic is a little worse for the wear)
My oldest son (he was 21) and I a month before he left for 15 mos. in Iraq (he left in 11/07)
My 20yo and I this past Jan. when he was on his way back to school after being home for the holidays.
