My youngest leaves for Bootcamp in 29 days..July 25th..
Posted By: christine esposito 06-26-11
My youngest son is leaving for Boot Camp Parris Island on July 25th. I have had a whole year to prepare for this (he enlisted in teh DEP last June) but I am starting to feel very anxious now. We had his HS Graduation Party yesterday and I did a life video of him and completely lost it! I feel like I am losing my best frinds. I am so proud of him and happy that he is pursuing his dream, But am going to feel lost without him..I am so afraid of missing that first call! How am I have never gone a day without speaking to my son in 18 1/2 yrs and now I will be separated from him for 13 weeks..
