We have known the date for several months now but somehow it arrived all to quickly. I have a new appreciation for those mothers who have sent their sons off to deployment. I can't even begin to imagine what that must feel like.
We said our tearful good-byes, hugged forever and are counting the days until we see him again. 8 weeks........it seems like eternity but I'm sure it will go by quickly.
Drew has such a passion for serving our country that I know in my heart he is in the right place. We love him and are very proud of the commitment he is making.
See you in 8 weeks Drew.
