My son is 22 and is currently in boot camp for the Marines. A month before he left he gets a girl friend that really doesn't fit real well in the family. In fact no one really likes her at all. I have been nice. Not ooshy gooshy nice, but polite. We ( his father and I) have been waiting to get the first letter from him from boot camp. We just find out that the girl friend has received approximately 8 letters and he sent the parents packet to her. Can I say ouch! I'm hurt but his dad is hurt more. I found some books on amazon that I will order to help me deal with letting your son go to try and help but I would love to hear from other moms that maybe are going thru something similar. Thank you.
