So my son left Thursday, June 20 for Boot Camp but he just finished his first year at a military college-The Citadel in May. He decided to take a semester off to enlist in the Naval Reserves and attend A school in California. I feel like I’ve kind of have been through this last year because he had to go through “boot camp” for about 9 months. The most difficult part of this one is that I can’t talk to him. While at school I only had to wait 2 weeks and then I could talk to him about every night, or at least I got a text from him(usually to send money). This time of waiting for phone calls is difficult, missing him is hard too but I’ve been through that part already. It does get easier because when he comes home, it makes for some really good times! Hang in there mommas, even though it doesn’t feel like it, we have the easier side of this.
