A hard weekend

Monday, September 09, 2013

Yesterday I had to say good bye to my baby boy for a year while he serves in Guantanamo Bay. there are far worse places to be, but it was still hard. He's never been more than a few hundred miles from home before- just while he was in school and every break he'd come home.

I know it'll get easier but this is harder than I thought it would be. I'm glad I was there along with his father, sisters and girlfriend. We all sent off his battle buddy also, his family couldn't make the trip.

Be safe my little boy.

Thank you to our troops!

    My housemate is Army SFC; his brother is Army and currently deployed to Afghanistan; my former housemate is USAF Captain; one of my best friends is USAF Major; her husband is retired USAF K9 handler; I grew up near an air base; my friends, colleagues and I send packages to the troops every year.

God bless your son, his battle buddy and all of our troops! emoticon
