My son was in the Air Force for 11 years. As he was away I missed seeing him. I now have a way for parents/wifes/friends to actually see and talk to soldiers who are away. Their are many soldiers in Iraq already using our video phones. I just wish I had something like this when my son was in the service and I wanted to share it.
What brought you to this site:
What were your feelings when your Airman joined the Air Force?
To be honest, I was upset when he joined at 19. It turned out to be the best thing for him. He is now a man to be very proud of. I would like to be able to share with others a way to keep in touch not only by talking but by seeing Please accept my apologies if you feel this was not the place to let people know what is possible at this time. I look forward to hearing from you. Arnola
Arnola, “Welcome to the Blue”. I am glad that you have joined us. I started Air Force Dads to help support and encourage parents and family members, girlfriends and boyfriends, of young men and woman who have or are going to join the Air Force. Please feel free to look around the site and get involved with the groups and discussions that are going on. Maybe start one of your own. I have two sons and both of them are in the military. My oldest joined the Navy and is stationed on the USS Abraham Lincoln CVN 72. My youngest joined the Air Force over 4 years ago. He is slated to deploy this Spring. Please thank your son for his service to this great country from an old Vietnam Vet. Thank you for raising a fine young man.
Hello, Arnola. I am the mom of a young man about to graduate high school and go straight into the Air Force. You could have knocked me over with a feather when he told me his plans. I am getting more and more anxious as his time approaches, but have found great comfort in this website. Your contribution is much appreciated. I'm sure I will be bugging the heck out of you over the next few months! Lesa
I haven't been at the site in a while, and just saw you message about your son. Well, at this point , my daughter has changed her mind and decided to finish college. I told her she can always go in as an Officer, if she decides to join. She will have more options, with a degree in Sociology, Social Services Option. FOr now, I will wait and see...
