I grew up on Army bases. I have always been enamored of soldiers. Heck! I married one! But having a child who grows up to be a soldier is a whole other ball of wax! A mixture of pride, awe and sheer terror! LOL
But it was all pride and awe this week when Joe and I went down to Columbia to attend family day and to watch Ben graduate from boot camp. My baby boy all growed up! And how! In 10 short weeks, he is more physically fit, more confident and more determined then ever to follow his dreams.
So thank you to everyone at Ft. Jackson for all they do to build up our children into American soldiers. The best Army in the world and the folks we have to thank for preserving our freedoms! God bless you each and every one!
