Wow! Well it's not quite a phone call or text, but a fellow parent on GoArmyParents.com pointed us to a site with tons of pictures from OSUT and BCT at various Army bases. Lo and behold, after endless clicks of the mouse, I actually found three very clear pictures of my son. I cannot really express how much joy it gives me to see him, especially because in two of the pictures he is smiling. I will try to remember this day when I am feeling down again!
A Soldier's Mom
This is a journal about my experiences as a soldier's Mom. My son gradated OSUT at Fort Benning in October 2013. He is currently stationed at Fort Carson, CO.
