My first born son shipped today
Posted By: Loretta Smith 07-25-11
Today is the day that I looked forward to and dreaded at the same time. Granted I have had months to come to the realization that he was actually leaving but you dont really believe it until they are on that plane.
Yesterday we had a going away party for him that consisted of his closest friends and tons of family. What an emotional day that was especially when I had to drop him off at the Recruiting Station yesterday evening knowing that I would not see him for 12 weeks.
We are so proud of him and I look forward to my first letter from him.
My heart is broken at the thought of him being gone but so proud of his choice and await graduation on October 21st in San Diego.
