It is hard to believe that my daughters 4 week leave is already up.She leaves at 0600 for Ft Lewis tomorrow.There will be floods of tears when she leaves. At least I know she will be safe in the states and not like last year when she left for Afghanistan.Ft Lewis will be happy to get her or I will have to go up there and knock some sense into them.Yep! thats me mom talking.In February she wants to try out for "Special Forces"Yikes! I read about what the training is like and its "oh no" I only think that. I tell her to" go for it".Do what makes you happy.I thought I was an adrenaline junkie working with "gang bangers" in a prison situation.The kid has me beat!I didn't have to be tortured and punched in the stomach every day just to pass the training.I just had to figure out how to get out of situations where I was being strangled or "jumped".(It worked the two times I was almost car jacked ,an once threatened outside a Seven eleven late at night.)So I guess the apple didn't fall far from the tree.I will still be crying at dawn tomorrow when my chickie leaves. I won't see her until some time this summer.
