Yesterday morning around 8 AM my son landed in Atlanta returning from Afghanistan, safe and sound he was a member of the ISAF serving through the US Army, he was posted to the Kabul ISAF Airbase. He joined the Army Reserves right out of High School, as a parent I am very proud of him. He will be returning to college at the University of Toledo where he is studying to become a teacher.
It has been a very stress filled year for me, I dont think there has been a day gone by where I havent worried for his safety. Those of you who have children know that raising them becomes your job, the feelings I had seeing him get on the plane for Afghanistan where I could no longer protect him was very powerfull and very frightning. Each day for the last year has been a struggle to think positively and try to push all of the what ifs from my mind, but I can tell you that I had some very bad dreams throughout the last year.
I am very looking forward to him arriving home and maybe getting to play some EVE with him before he heads out to school again. I think I may have to buy him a new character as he was using mine and I think he sold his old character when I stopped playing. In any event I will be very happy to help him get settled back into the normal day to day away from the war.
