My 19 year old son is leaving for GL bootcamp on 7/9 ...Im excited and worried... cant stop crying... I had him at 24 and we have never really been apart. He goes to Nuke school in South Carolina right after .... anyone else have kids going to bootcamp same date? any advice to calm my nerves...Ugggh ...so bittersweet all of this :(
I left info on your My Page, including groups to get connected with others with loved ones shipping the same time.
Thank You so much :)
You are very welcome.
My son also leaves on the 9th, he is 19. Ive been a single parent since he was just 4 yrs old and the thought of him leaving has me on a emotional roller coaster. I know what he is doing is awesome and I am so proud of him, but my heart still hurts.
Our Son is headed there for the same date, our last of 10 children. Hard to let this one go but VERY proud! Terry

My 19 year old son left on June 16th. All I can say is the time has gone by so fast that you will be seeing him before you know it. They are so busy they don't have much time to miss us so my advise is to do the same yourself. You will feel relief of that anxiety once he leaves. Too much of a count down before that. Try to ignore the count down for one day and enjoy the 4th.
My son is also leaving 7/9. He is going conventional ET. My husband was a nuke ET. We dated while he was in Power school. He serviced his four years and got out.
