My son called me today to tell me he aced out his scores and is going to join up. He wants to be a Ranger and I think he has what it takes. My
emotions run the gambit from pride to fear to memories better left dead. I know now how my Father, a Korean Vet felt when I joined.
I remember the baby in diapers and the scared little kid I took to the DoJo with me for the first time. I remember his first steps and his graduation.
I remember the fights, the hunting trips, the cheers and the tears that every parent has with his kids.
I remember the death and the bloodshed,the fear and I must admit the almost druglike rush of combat.
I hope my son comes back home.
