Default Goodbye son, for now...

My big kid boarded a plane today headed for Lackland Air Force Base to begin his career in the United States Air Force. Good luck, see you in eight weeks. Love mom and dad.

Man, does that bring back memories!

I remember that day. it was the most emotional/anxious/excited/nervous day I ever had (till we had my son)...

God bless him, and good luck!!!

Good Luck to mom and dad to! my son is only 4 and I get emotional just thinking about him maybe wanting to enlist, and us leave him at MEPS... I know my parents were a wreck.

8 weeks flys by though, and basic training was cake. he will be fine!

Tell him thank you from us !

We dropped my daughter about 2 1/2 years ago in Lansing to fly to Lackland . She stationed in Guam now as a contractor . Sure do miss her but were proud of her.

PS send him some musical greeting cards the big guys there will love it ;-)

The pic at the restaurant was from DeLuca's in Lansing, the only place to go for pizza and my sons only meal request before he left.

Thanks everyone it's been tough but exciting and I know he will rise to the top.
