My son has gone back and forth as to whether he will re-enlist when the time comes. Of course if it was my decision I wouldn't do it because of how things have gotten over in Afghanistan but it is not my decision and again my son knows that what ever he decides I will be there to support him 100%.
I have made some amazing friends through PODS and several other Army Mom groups that have made some of this a little easier.
When you think your life is tough please remember us Army Moms who really have the challenge. Having your child in a war zone is not something I wish on anyone.
I thank God everyday that my son is back home with his family who loves him so very much and is safe.
