Im hoping to find other moms out here that have a son/daughter going to boot camp at the same time. It is only 1 week away I have so many emotions, hoping Im not alone. Not sure how Im going to handle my life without my son at home. Oh my goodness trying so hard to be strong but it is not easy.
Im near Chicago, IL do you know a date for the graduation? Our son just informed up that he has to be at the recuiters office on Monday oh my goodness, what is your sons name, how old is he? My son is Brandon he is 19, he is going to be a Corpsman with a Marine unit what about your son what position will he be? Are you freaking out at all?
Regis is 18, Engineer/Firefighter
I'm excited because I know this is the beginning of a new in his life. However, I'm sad as I know it may face a few hard days and nights. He's very excited and I am too. I just want this bootcamp to be over with! I've been cooking dinner everyday and I plan on taking him to breakfast on 31st. He knows I love him but I guess I just need to go the extra mile in showing him and telling him.
Damage Control - he says it's Fire Fighter and Engineer.
We are from Western Maryland. He will be flying out of Balitmore. No nerves here yet. I'm excited for him to begin his journey.
