My child is 9 years old. He was in school and I was in the National Guard still and coming to school as well, actually during my schooling I got orders to activate, to deploy during my time here so towards the end of my school I was also preparing for deployment as well as managing my home life so it was hard. Right after I graduated they cancelled my deployment so…but the support that I had from the people here and the instructors was amazing.
My son is very proud of me for what I have done. My family in general is proud, but more so my son is proud of me just because he can look and me and say, my mom worked hard and it paid off and I can do the same thing.
