Army Moms have a few things in common: we are all proud of our soldier children and concerned for their safety. Army Moms worry. We cry. We laugh. We listen to and support each other when needed. We live our daily lives always wondering if our deployed or soon-to-be deployed sons and daughters are safe. We pray.
I talked to my son today. He will be deployed in two weeks. It’s my turn to fear the unknown. So many Army Moms have been there to help me stay strong. But this time, I went to my son and asked him for his advice. What would he say to a concerned Army Mom of a deployed soldier?
He told me this: “Tell them that the United States has the most well trained Army in the world. We are professionals, all highly trained to do our jobs. Our Military is second to none. We are confident and excel at our jobs. Tell them to have faith and confidence in what we do.”
My son helped me be a little stronger today.
