53 days and counting - Base was hit - cant come soon enough for me

I cant wait for Brock and our other soldiers to be safely at home. Brock told me the other day he had something to tell me if I promised not to worry. (okay, show me any mom who does NOT worry, lol) His base was hit the other night. I cant even imagine. We were all here, his dad, his 2 brothers and me and we were all extremely upset and worried. It was so good to hear from him afterward and know he was okay. I guess I got lulled into that sense of security since he is working on a base that apparently hasnt seen anything like this in quite awhile and he is so close to coming home. Now my panic button has risen again. I ask that you all keep everyone of our brave men and women in your thoughts and prayers!!!

WOW! I hope everything is ok. I feel for you. My 17 yr. old said something today about going in the service. Although I feel proud, it frightens me to death!

I will put him on my prayer list!

I hope every thing is okay with your son and I'm happy you were able to hear his voice. Tell him to keep up the great work and come home safe.

My prayers are with your son. It has to be hard. Your son is doing an amazing job. I hope time flys by so he can be back home with you!
