I am new to this site. My son has been in the
Army since April of 2012. He went to fort sill for
bootcamp now he is stationed at Fort Bragg. He is
a paratrooper. Its hard having him so far away. Im
thankul to have a close relationship with my daughter
in law. I talk to him but as we all know there time
can be limited. Im extremely proud of him and we did
support his decision.

My son Andrew graduated from high school 5/21/14. He arrived at Ft. Sill.yesterday for bootcamp. This has been his life long dream. We are very proud of him. I miss him soo much already. We recieved his phone call at 2:30 AM this morning. How have you other moms dealt with this?

Hi Everyone, I was wondering if anyone could answer a question for me. My son is in Fort Benning BT, he has been there since Oct. 22,2013. He has not received a single letter I have sent, is it normal for the command to hold back letters?

Thank you Tricia,

Yes, my son is at Fort Benning Georgia. I am so glad to hear that they have a FaceBook page. I am very happy that you got to see a picture of your son, it gives me hope.  Yesterday was tough, though I did have many family visitors to keep me occupied. I am very thankful that I do have a supportive family. I did find myself talking to Our Lord a lot more yesterday, and I know that God will see me through this. It is also good that my 10yr old twins are keeping me busy with school and the church Christmas play that they are both in again. Between bake sales for church and school fund raisers and the Fishes and Loaves ministry I am very busy. Late evenings are rough, I have been a single mom for ten years, Patrick and I bonded when the younger kids were in bed. Me and him use to watch scary movies and talk about everything. I miss those talks already.

Hi Phyllis Chase,
I know the feeling of being an emotional wreck. My one and only son left for Georgia on September 16. Letting go and still being supportive for his decision to join is, by far the hardest thing, I did as a mother besides giving! But it is my faith in The Lord and His Word that sews my heart together each morning, as difficult as it may seem, that gets me out of bed and forges me forward to carry on.
Is you son going to Ft Benning? My son is at Ft Benning and they have a Facebook page that you can like and become a friend. Once they are assigned to a company, they post pictures on fb of their training activities and give weekly updates on what our soldiers have learned. Last week I actually found a action picture of my son on the obstacle course. I was soooo happy as that was the 1st time I got to see him in over a month.

Sorry didn't mean to write a lengthy post comment.

I am still a newbie army mom but my advice is to lean on God for strength

Hi everyone, my name is Phyllis. My 19yr old son is leaving Oct 22, 2013 for basic training in Georgia. I was so excited and happy for my son when he first told me that he was going. As the date gets closer I find that I am an emotional wreck. Patrick is my oldest and I have 3 more after him, but he is my first. I find that I am crying over stupid stuff and not dealing with his leaving for the Army.  This is the first time I am even talking about it. This is tougher than I thought, I just pray that he calls me when he is down there.
