“So your son’s in the Army? How do you feel about that?”
I gave life to my son in a place of peace and freedom. He committed that life to insure I will grow old in a state of security and Liberty.
I raised and protected my son from birth to manhood. He raised his hand and vowed to protect us all to the death.
I taught my son that respect, honor, self-sacrifice, and duty where virtues to live by. He taught me that those values along with leadership, loyalty, integrity, and personal courage are what make a warrior.
I promised my son I will always love and support him, and that wherever he goes, I will always be here for him. He promised he’ll go wherever he must to make sure we will all be safe here waiting for him.
God bless you son and all your brothers and sisters at arms. ‘May the Lord watch between you and me while we are apart’ Genesis 31:49.”
