Proud of him yet perplexed
Posted By: Janine Thomas-Smith 05-05-12
My son, 19, and wanting to make a difference, I was proud to see his dedication to a career in being an excellent son and citizen, yet perplexed in the demands and obligations of serving. After a few weeks, I realized that this is an excellent decision, though it pains my heart a confusion, I can not really describe. There are no Marine parents around me, I have to rely on the grace of God and a few family members experience. I am proud of my son.
