My baby girl is leaving for boot camp on 08/22. We adopted her when she was just 4 (she is our first born granddaughter) and the closest thing to our hearts. I am very, very proud of her. BUT her leaving is just tearing me apart. I am going to try to go to the ceremony before they board the plane, as I know I won't be able to afford to go to boot camp graduation. She is signed on for 6 plus 2 reserve. And her A school will be a 2 day drive away. I just wish I could stop my tears.

My son told me after boot camp, "Home will always be where you are mom." It is hard to let go, but they will always come home. You will find so much to talk about, and you will find that it is all good. They have to grow, that is what life is about.

Doreen, I know it's going to be tough. My daughter, our youngest, is at boot camp now. I was surprised, she has not even been there a month and we have had two phone calls and one letter from her so far! So that has really helped. One thing, be sure to read on this website the list of items she needs to bring to boot camp. A phone card really helps! They sell them near the Walmart checkout. My daughter has also signed on for the 6 year enlistment due to two years of schools at the beginning. Hugs to you!
