Thinking...

It is funny, but today is a weird day. I am sad, proud, worried, and concerned. Probably quite a few more feelings I can't put names to. My BABY BROTHER shipped out yesterday. He is a helicopter pilot for the Marines, and he has been shipped out to protect this wonderful country we call home! I am sad that he will be put in harm's way! I am proud that he is doing this for those of us benefitting our freedom! I am worried for his wife and our mom! I am concerned for not knowing the future!


My brother was BORN to do this. He was born and raised a military "brat" and knew early on that this was the life for him. He is living his dream! I know he will be safe, use his head, and come home to us! But I do feel bad for his wife and our mom! Kerri is from a small town here in Texas and is now away from her loved ones while her husband is gone! Think of her!
All for now...
Lights Out!

it's so hard when they are gone. There are just so many things that can happen even though our heads tell us they will be safe! I post with a group of Marine Moms and we just keep reminding each other that our boys are safer there than if they were home riding in cars with other teen boys. Of course your brother is a bit older, but it's the same thing. He is well trained and has all his buddies working to keep him safe.
