Day 0:

31 Jan

Well my son left today for basic military training. I am quite aware of the fact that this is an inevitable part of life and growing up; but watching him take every step away from us this morning as he worked his way up the escalator towards airport security, I couldn’t help but imagine my little man as a young boy going to school. I was being really strong with only a couple tears (here & there) escaping. I promised him I would do my very best to refrain from crying. I’d say I did pretty good under the circumstances. I saw my little boy walk away and the next time I see him a grown man will be marching by in formation. 

Well this is Day 0 and really I don’t know how many zero days we have before his actual training begins.   Stay tuned……
