My Kid Is In Boot Camp
When a young adult makes the choice to join the military, it is often for various reasons, and the decision is not often made lightly. There are lots of prep work before one attends boot camp. Boot camp is a time when the young adult will go through training on how to wear the uniform, to meeting exercise and knowledge tests, to learning the new job they will be expected to perform during their service.
Meanwhile, there is the parents and love ones that nervously wait. Indirectly, as parents and loved ones, we too, have enlisted in the military. Many of us are not quite prepared for the new changes in our lives. It takes many of us off guard. We want to support our troops but those are our hearts in those uniforms. We begin to change right along in our own personal boot camp.
We join support groups online and in our community. We become more aware of existence in the world. We notice more who is supporting and who isn’t supporting our troops. We begin to change simple things in our lives that we find have no meaning for things of greater importance. We acquire understand, empathy, and respect for those serving with our love one.
It is not easy to have a kid in boot camp. The communications are slim and more priceless than any element on the planet. A letter, text, or call is the most important event of the day. We learn to be strong, carry on, be positive, and cry after we hang up, text back, and finish the letter. We are all trying to be strong for each other. But boot camp will toughen us all up. We are in this together. Carry on.
