Hello!

I just found this site and thought I'd check it out.  My son joined the Marines in January and completed bootcamp in April, then infantry school in July.  He is with infantry and in Reserves currently....I so thankful he's home right now and looking at going back to college.  It's difficult for him though living the military/civilian split lifestyles.  He knows eventually he'll be deployed and is "ready".  I will always be here to support him with my head up, but how does one prepare themselves for that when the time comes???  I pray for all the troops and their families everyday.

Thanks for letting me share!  :)

Hi and welcome to the group. We are glad to have you.

As far as your son goes, Mama, I don't know how you do it. I'm glad he's home with you now =)

I believe there are groups here on CafeMom that are for Moms with children serving. You may want to try and look for those. I'm sure they would be a wonderful support group and would know how you feel.

Thanks for all the replies and support !  :)  I feel kinda dumb because I initially joined the webite to sign up for the military mom club!  But, if you will still have me, I'd love to stay in the NY Moms club, too!  :)

Of course we would love to have you. I hope my first reply didn't come off sounding like I didn't. I just thought that other military Moms could offer you some much better advice than I ever could.
