OK....My son has been enlisted for a little over a yr and is stationed at FT CAMPBELL,KY. Yes, he is an Infantryman and proud of it. My son is only 20 yo and a sweet kid. KID. He has NO idea what he may be facing overseas and he's even anxious to go. He is going with other men who have been deployed before and we have spoken to them. They say they'll get him back safe, but can they really? I am a "hot mess".
My dh and I are both veterans and know how the military works. We know they will try to keep them all safe. There are no guarantees and promises. I just pray that my son and the soldiers hes with will not have to endure combat with casualties.
I have a feeling I'm going to need some therapy...
