Re: Re: *sigh*

I didn't have much choice when I went in the service, but when I think back at that time, I see a old child/young man who was ignorant, unskilled, out of school, and poor. The service may have been the best option I had. And, of course, I was better adjusted when I came out--I was 3 years older, to begin with and aging, responsibility, and pocket money have a way of turning old children into young adults.

I know the feeling well, Jesse. Just know that he will be supported by many
prayers and good wishes. My son's four years in the Navy were hard for us,
especially since he didn't communicate for two of those years, but he really
came out a much stronger, better adjusted person. This just seems to be
something that some young men have to do. Now we've been there with
two grandsons. I know how hard it is for you to accept, but believe me,
there could be far worse. Be proud of him.
