A Concerned Military Mom
I can't believe that I'm still awake, it's so late. My boys are sleeping over their friend's house and my husband is sound asleep. My twenty-one year old daughter joined the Marines in April. She will be home in July. It's been really tough for her and I'm on the verge of tears every time I think of her. I'm so worried about her. I know they are taking good care of her, it's just that I'm not there for her. I've always been there for her. She has written some wonderful letters home that are all encouraging and brave. I know that she's having a hard time. Not that she wants to get out, just that it's so hot, mentally draining and physically hard. I just want to see her beautiful face again and give her a big hug. When she graduates, the Marines will assign her to a post that will be far away. I keep wondering where that will be? I just hope it's safe and that she will be happy with her new job. Until then I am deeply concerned.
