When he came home for hometown, it was good to see him everyday, but I sometimes wish he wouldn't have done it. I would have been more ready for him being gone.

He left two weeks ago. I have talked to him a few times and I have seen him on the webcam but now he is telling me it will be 15 days before I hear from him again. So now i turn off my webcam before we finish talking so he does not see me with watery eyes and I just tell him had to plug something else in.

He will be fine and so will you. I am so thankful for the people on this site tht has helped me get this far. Hell Yea I sill cry but nobody sees me do it and it don't last long. I am sure I will be one of those mom's that will cry harder when he comes home then I did when he left. But it will be ok... Because he will be here!!!


I didn't realize that you can talk to them on a webcam when they are overseas.??

Depends on where he is and what kind of access to internet he has.

Mine never talked to me on one, but I'm not saying he didn't talk to his fiance' on it. She got most of the phone calls too. I got mostly e-mails. Not complaining (like it would do any good!) I was happy with any contact I could have.

i will be seeing my son in uniform first time at christmas....i am crying already....i have been the biggest crybaby ever in my life...but when he is around, i will encourage his decision, laugh and be proud...but in my heart, i am wanting him where i can help him and take care of him...
but when i was young, i would have left my family in a minute to go to the airforce, but they wouldnt even let me take the physical because of some problems, but i remember how i looked so forward to going, and how proud i was that i had passed their tests with such high scores...I have to remember the feeling of being young and having something to be proud of and look forward to.
at least now he has goals, and hope, and a sense of acheivement...
how exciting it must be as opposed to this cake decorating job that it took me all these years to get, to know what i wanted to do....at least they get to dig into something that interests them instead of searching and working every menial job they can until they find something they even halfway like...
remember being young...and this is what helps me...
I just cry when i am in my car, or in my room.

A tear or two of joy and pride will be OK. I was allowed a few of those kind. Just no worry, or I miss you tears.

Talking son in army..

hi my son is in ait right now but he will be doing his hometown recruiting soon.. he just came home for the christmas holidays and ifind mself in the same mood as you...it's horrible to be this way..but i also have my husband going off to basic tomorrow.. so it's twice as bad here...
i wake up crying and go to sleep crying.. i feel so bad for them to know it..so i leave my bed trying not to wake my husband up with my crying.. it's so hard because we are raising our grandbabies so i'll be left here to take care of them alone and i am handicapped...i worry that something may go wrong but he is confident that it will be ok.. i am very proud of both of my men....but i feel bad to cry when i see my son.. he is my baby.. i mean he is my youngest child.. and the one i am most proud of..it's hard to send them off.. and he will be going to fort bragg n.c. i was told they are supposed to deploy in july.. so i am very worried for my son...just wondering if my husbandwill also be sent to fort bragg. he was told it is almost asure thing that he will be posted to bragg.so if he is they will both be deployed in july.
