My son is there as well. It is a constant worry, isn't it? I keep Skype on all the time and have never used FB so much before!! If you need to talk, feel free to contact any one of us. We all understand what you're going through. We're also going to have a pack-up event in Commerce Ga. on May 21st. Tag along if you can make it! We'd love to have you. {{{HUGS}}}

Proud Mom,

My son is on his 2nd Afghanistan deployment, in all he has had 5 combat deployments.  I remember his first.. as if it were yesterday!  I cannot tell you it gets easier.. but you do learn how to handle it better.  Sleep is still hard to come by.. jump every time the phone rings.. always having it by you... and when you find yourself carrying your lap top into the bathroom with you because you are afraid you will miss a message from him.... you know you are over the edge!
