My 18 yo Son just left for the Army

Hi;

I am very new to this site and am looking for; friends, other Army moms, advice, etc.

My baby boy whom I've always had a very close relationship with just left for the Army on Monday, September 16th.  Any advice on how to adjust to this? I'm of course going through every emotion possible.  Worried, scared, concerned, freaked out etc..

How did other moms get through this?  and how are they handling it?

 

Thanks

Ryan's mom

My 19 yo son is in the Air Force and stationed in Germany.  I miss him terribly and wish we could talk more, but I know he made the right decision for him and he is getting experiences he would never have otherwise.

I was a basket case when my son left for AF basic. It goes by surprisingly fast and graduation will be here before you know it. My son is doing so well I look back on my missing him and almost feel foolish. Hang in there, it'll get better :)

 I have 2 sons in the army.   The oldest is stationed state side.  The youngest is over seas.  I miss both of them.   Emails, text messages and facebook helps alot.
