Off to MCRD for my son Adam
Posted By: David Songer 05-11-12
Adam left on May the 7th 2012, this is a change that I as a father am not dealing with very well . He has had this dream since he was a very young child but never ever thought he would follow thru with it.I have always supported him but at the same time was and still am scared to death. The day he got on that plane was like losing a loved one, my heart still hurts but my faith is helping me to understand that a young man arrived at the airport and became a man when he boarded that plane. He is a better man than I could ever be. I cant wait for the first letter and when we go to CA for graduation. But Im afraid the feeling will be worse after his 11 days off and being shipped out again. I love you son and miss you son much.
