Deploying

Well, it is happening to me. I am going to be one of those parents who has a child serving in the military overseas. Shay received word that she will be deploying to Sather Air Base in Baghdad. She has to be there by Jan 15th so not sure when she has to leave or which route she is taking. Lots of things to find out and lots of things to do. I did find a website that helps me determine what time it is and what the weather is. Current local time in Baghdad. I guess I am going to have to blog more so I keep my sanity. I am very proud of her and I know she is going someplace that is very safe. But it does not keep me from being nervous. Keep with me on this journey.

Michelle, I'll hang with you. After having a nephew in Somalia, one in Bosnia and a brother in Italy and a brother-in-law that was stationed in Germany back in the day, I have a hint of your nerves. While none of the above was my child, they were all very dear to me, (except maybe my b.i.l.) He was a pain, but my sis loves him... anyway, I'll hang with you.

First of all, thank you Shay for your service to our country.

We will all be here for you 24/7. I keep candles lit for all the servicepeople I personally know and will get Shay's candle lit after I post it. Shay is every parent's dream from what I have read and you have to be so proud of her. You hang in there and know you're in my prayers. We're awaiting to see when Michael goes.

Yes, Michelle, you will have to post more often so we can follow Shay on her overseas tour. Will you get to see her before she deploys? I hope so. Please know that I will keep her in thoughts and prayers for her safety, and you for your peace. We thank her for serving our country.

Just stumbled upon your blog and want to say "THANK YOU" to Shay... and to you... for her service and both of your sacrifice.

My son is on his way to Army basic training right now. While this is hard for me, I cannot imagine what today is like for you.
