Military Career? Yay or Nay?
There’s something I’ve been meaning to ask you. Many of you are part of military families. Thank you for that service to our country and to our world. Life as MOM readers are multi-national, so I know not all of you are serving my nation directly. Regardless, thank you.
While there is much horror and error possible when it comes to war, I believe that military force is a valuable and necessary defense against the crazies in this world. At least until Jesus comes back and brings peace. I appreciate and respect the sacrifices that your family has made and is making.
I also have a son who desires to make his career in the military, specifically US Army Special Forces. Be still, my shaking, mother’s heart. As a protection/deterrent/distraction/delay, I’ve insisted that he must have a college degree. Because honestly? It’s easier to let that military force be someone not related to me.
This dream of his? It scares the crap out of me.
But, I’m all about fulfilling your dreams, right? So, how can I not help him pursue this?
So, I put the questions to you, military women, moms, wives, sisters and all you military men reading as well — all one of you 😉
Would you do it again?
What do you love about it?
What do you hate about the military life?
What advice do you have for a 14-year old boy with these aspirations?
Have you got a question you’d like Life as MOM readers to answer? They’re a crackerjack bunch of smart people!
