    my son the soldier

      My son was only eighteen when he joined the army. He was only a young man. I am so very proud of him. When he joined I was happy but little did I know he would be sent over seas. It worried me so to know he was so far from home.
    He didn't tell me he almost got killed in the line of duty untill he came out of the army. Now he is all grown up and I can proudly say he fought for our country knowing he could die any time. He tells me he has nightmares all the time, people don't understand what it does to our young men when they go over there. Please pray for our young men over there for you do not know the harm it does to there minds. Please understand the mothers and fathers who worry so much. Not to mention the other family members who go through the turmoil.

    Well written, armymom. I'm not a soldier but I know one has to go through. We only look at the strong tough exterior and don't see what goes on inside them. They are like the ducks that swims so serenly in a pond. But down there they are paddling like hell!



    Thank you very much!

    Well expressed, armymom. There's no explaining the process (not from my limited perspective, anyway); Everything is just different, probably because you're not looking at things with the same eyes. I'm very glad your son came through it, and I'm glad he has the concern and support of a mom like you to ease the transition.



    Thank you so much and my son is doing better. He went through a very hard time over sea's. He didn't tell me untill he came home that he almost died in a convoy. Thank God he came home safe. I still worry about our service people who are still in danger.

    Dear Armymom1025: I thank the Lord your son came home safely and I thank your son for fighting for all of us. Sad we haven't learned how to settle our differences without war.
