"Lesa Shelton said:Thank you all so much. I am feeling better, but mostly because I have pushed the thoughts aside, so I am sure the other shoe will drop at some point. I "self-censor" the news for now. Wes and I were talking again today…"
"Lori, I wanted to stop by and say hello. Mike is still in Tech School, how is doing? I am sure he is doing well. How are you doing?
David is doing well, we just heard that he has been transferred to another squadron and will not be deployed this…"
I get a sick feeling in my stomach everytime I hear of any soldier being wounded or killed anywhere now! I am teary now as I read your post and know I am not alone in my fears. My son will not graduate from Tech School until June. He is in…"
"Lori, Thanks for asking. David is doing fine. Next month he will be in the Air Force 5 years. He and his wife are expecting their first child due in August. We are very excited, Jane and my first grandchild. His unit will be deployed soon but due to…"
Michael called Friday to let us know he was assigned to Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska. We are from North Idaho almost to the Canadian border and I had to get our globe out of the closet to see where Nebraska was! We had all hoped he would be a little closer. He really wants to take his truck and motorcycle to the base.Later today he called and said that most of his buddies at Tech School were going to Minot, ND so he is going to try and switch assignments with a guy that does not want to go…See More
"Michael took his cell phone with him to Basic Training. It was locked up when he arrived and he got it back on Friday morning before graduation! We took his laptop down with us and he was able to use it right away at Tech School. How are you doing?"
Your are smart to have found a site like this before your son leaves. I came home after dropping my son off at his motel the night before he left for BMT a wreck!! It was late and my husband went to bed and all I could do was cry! I sat at the…"
"Michael, Thank you for welcoming me to the site. Graduation weekend was one of the most remarkable weekends I have spend in my life!! From the moment I saw my Michael first at the Airman's Run until we left him on Tuesday nite are memories that…"
"Hi there, Lori. My name is Lesa and my son is 18. He graduates high school in May, then goes off to BMT shortly after. I'd love to hear your perspective on your son's journey. I am a nervous wreck, but have found great comfort with my…"
Lori, “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 Mike for his service to this great country from an old Vietnam Vet. Thank you for raising a fine young man.
Hi there, Lori. My name is Lesa and my son is 18. He graduates high school in May, then goes off to BMT shortly after. I'd love to hear your perspective on your son's journey. I am a nervous wreck, but have found great comfort with my "Air Force Dads" friends. Welcome!
Lori, Thanks for asking. David is doing fine. Next month he will be in the Air Force 5 years. He and his wife are expecting their first child due in August. We are very excited, Jane and my first grandchild. His unit will be deployed soon but due to him having been diagnosed with asthma he has been put on the back up list and it looks as if he will not be going. If he does end up going he will miss the birth of his child. We pray that he will not have to go this time. Yes I am very proud of him. And would say that you are just as proud of Mike.
How is Mike doing? I am thinking he is still in Tech School, am I correct in thinking that?
