rmy. My oldest son made the choice to join the US Army. He is currently training at Ft. Benning, Georgia to become a Cavalryman; the training is not easy.
While he’s been away training our main form of communication has been letters through the US Postal Service. It takes around a week for our letters to reach each other and they usually cross paths on their trip. It’s certainly not the best way to communicate when you, as a mother, want to know everything that’s going on with your child. Especially when the communication relies on a 20-year-old who has grown up in a world where his home always had a computer and email to pick up a pen and tell his mother what’s going on with him!
|Letters from my son are treasured.|
|My son, early in the morning as we were|
headed to the Airport after the Holiday break.
As a Mom of an Army Soldier, praying and writing letters is about all I can do – the rest is up to my son, his Leaders and his fellow Soldiers. I pray they all stay safe and make good decisions.
