I am nervous for him.  I'm proud of him.  I'm gonna miss him.  Lot's of mixed emotions.  I can only imagine what it will be like when he gets deployed...Ugh

That is awesome. Congratulations to you and him. What branch did join? What is his specialty going to be? Where is he going to bootcamp at?

There certainly are a lot of mixed emotions there. It has been 2 years since my stepson left. He is in the Navy and currently stationed in Florida.

It's tough - but hang in there. Boot camp will likely be rough for him. Keep encouraging him and he'll get through just fine!

Agree it is such a huge mix of emotions.Some mom of military advice find of friend that will let you be worried ,nervous ,scared as well as the proud and happy part also.I had several well meaning friends that would counter every concern with no need to be worried and lots of that kind of stuff.Sometimes I just needed to say I was worried and have my friend just say something like she understood.Let me get it out and for me it's easier to move on.

Message me if you ever need to.I will virtually pat your hand and listen.

Proud of you for being such a strong mom...hugs.

Proud of Joe !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you.  He is in the National Guard, infantry, boot camp is in Ft. Benning Georgia.  I hear it's pretty humid there.
