My 18 year old son has enlisted in the Marines. He did this after much soul-searching and talking with other people who are in the military etc. When he told me my first thought was NO but after telling me nobody else is stepping up Mom I have to do this what if they bring back the draft and Grady (my youngest) gets drafted. I said but the Marines? He said I'm gonna be the best. So of course as my heart breaks I give him my full support but my question is when people here this they say "Oh my god! Is he going to Iraq??" yes - he's going to die! you have to talk him out of going! What is in people's heads to say something like that? I feel like slapping them! Sorry but it's so unfeelng.
