As many of you know I'm a band mom.....and band moms always end up with extra sons and daughters. Tonight we had dinner with one of my extra sons and his family.....it was his last night at home before leaving for the Navy tomorrow.
He is of course a wonderful person.....he took me to Jacksonville when I had to break the news to my daughter that her grandfather died.
We are very proud of him and at the same time scared for him....sigh....
I know how you feel. My kids were/are heavily involved with band/chorus at school. It's true you end up with lots of kids. We too have had some of our extra kids head over seas. We have 3 right now in Iraq and on headed to Saudi any day.
I'll pray for his safety.
Best wishes to him for safety and a smart salute for serving his country,

Thank You to him for his unselfish service for the rest of us. May God protect and keep him. My stepdad and My son both were in the Navy and it is a fine branch.
Give him my regards.
