Where overseas? My son is almost done with AF Tech School and is going overseas to Germany. I'm assuming your son is going to Afghanistan.

Why can't you go to his graduation?

Sorry to hear you won't see him before he goes overseas. Make sure you two can get Skype set up!!

 So sorry about that.. Sometimes that happens with combat MOS's though. The first cycle my husband helped train in 2010 had a kid go straight from Louisville Airport to Germany to his units Rear D for a few days, then sent out to Afghanistan.

I hope you get some good communication before he leaves though.

Can't get off work, money, etc.  Going to my son's basic graduation cost me over $1200 between plane tickets, rental car, food, hotel, etc.

Wasn't the time you spend with him worth it or do you regret it?

Of course I don't regret it.  I had the money to spend and was easily able to get the time off work, not everyone can do that.
