PostSubject: Prayers for my boys   Sat May 02, 2009 7:32 pm

You may recall that both of my 2 younger boys are in the United States Air Force National Guard. Jake was the one that went to basic training back in 2007 and was missed so very much by Josh and I.

Well, Josh joined back in January and he will be leaving June 2 for San Antonio for his 8 1/2 weeks of basic training. After that, he will be in Wichita Falls, TX for his tech school and will be there till December 23.

Jake will be leaving out in July for Cuba. Since Obama has decided to close down the prison there, Jake will be one of the ones involved in tearing it down. He says he would rather go to Iraq than Cuba, since no time is a good time to be in Cuba.

I am asking for yours prayers on behalf of my boys that they will be ok and make it through their orders. I also ask that you pray for all the other young men and women who are either signing up and leaving out, or for those getting orders to go to foreign soil.

Thank you in advance........... Blue

Well, ain't that the truth.

I'll definitely be praying for the boys , Rhonda. Sometimes I think the parents of our military people must have just as much guts as their children.

Thanks everyone. Received a text message from Jake this morning, it said, "as of today you are my power of attorney". Kind of a slap in the face with reality, huh?!?!? Blue

Oh Rhonda, my heart just aches for you. It's hard enough for me to send Brendan away to college and I get to see him at least once a month. I'm so sorry you have to deal with their leaving....every time they do it has to hit hard, and probably most especially with your 'baby'. I will be praying for the boys' safety Rhonda, and for your strength.

((((HUGS))))

Well, my baby has to be up at the base by 7:15 am on June 2, to get his plane ticket to head out to San Antonio for his Basic Military Training. I did this just 2 years ago with Jake, and now I am sending my Josh off. This mama isn't going to be worth a flip tomorrow.......

Picture of Josh and Jake below at Jake's Graduation in August 2007. Josh will graduate July 31, 2009, then on to Wichita Falls, Texas for his tech school. Jake leaves end of July, first part of August for Cuba. He will be there 6 months, so I am losing 2 of my 3 boys.....pray for their safety please.

I will be praying for Josh and Jake, Rhonda. Tell them "Thank you" for their bravery in helping to keep our Country safe.

God Bless them both

It is never easy to let them go, is it? My son isn't even that far away and I miss him. I'll certainly be praying for them, and for you too. A mother's heart needs all the prayers it can get.

You are sending them off with years of love Rhonda. They will remember that. I will keep you all in prayer.

I heard from Josh yesterday and the conversation was going well, until he asked his brother, Jake (who was on a three-way call with us) if he would be coming to his graduation July 31. Jake said that he is supposed to ship out the 24th or 28th and would not be able to make it. Well......Josh lost it.... bawling I tried my best to calm him down, but he just couldn't compose himself.....It broke my heart because there was nothing that I could do. Jake has spoken to some of the commanders in charge at the base and is trying to get some time off before he goes to Cuba to visit his brother....I hope this works out......

He also asked me to ask the church to pray for him, so you know it is rough down there if HE has to ask.....So, I am passing his request on a little bit further.....Please, pray for Josh.....I know he would appreciate it. And if there are any of you that would like to write him, PM me and I will give you his address. Just tell him you know his mama from the Little House forum..... Thumbsup
