Today my Stepson left for his first deployment in the army. I'm not even sure if I am using the right terminology. Either way, it is a huge step in a long journey for him. He signed up for six years of duty plus two non active years. He was nervous. Probably mostly about the unknown. Aren't we all that way when we have no idea what is ahead? He is flying overseas to a country he's never been to before and this will only be his second time flying.
With a new President (in my opinion) he may have a lot to be nervous about. Or not. Only time will tell.
It must be difficult becoming a new soldier. You've got to appear tough yet all these emotions are running high. But he made the choice and he's going! That takes a lot of courage in my book. Especially in these trying times. It's a little unsettling.But if you could today....could you say a prayer for him? A prayer asking for him to stay strong, peaceful and confident about his next phase in life? And also, most importantly, for his safety. Dear Hubs and I thank you!
