When did my baby grow up?????

It is with overwhelming pride and a HUGE lump in my throat that I announce that I am officially the mother of a United States Air Force Airman, Tyler Allen.  Wow, what emotions are going thru my head and heart!  Yesterday he was just a tiny thing and today he signed to help to defend our country for the next 8 years during some of the most turbulent times my generation has ever seen.  One thing is for sure, he doesn't go alone.........he takes with him the abundant love of his family and friends and prayers that will be constantly sent up for him from generations of loved ones present and past. He also takes with him pride in his country and his belief that he defends a nation that is still "Under God" whether or not you choose to believe in Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. He symbolizes the wise youth of today who still believe that the American dream lives in those who choose to Pursue it with honesty and integrity and hard work. He represents the American Soldier who thru the ages has given all to ensure freedom for those of us whom they love and even for those who don't respect or value their huge sacrifices.  He embodies those who still stand with hat in hand and tears in their eyes when they hear the words of our National Anthem ring out to symbolize Freedom, Faith and Family. Today, I stand in awe of a Great young man who has only just begun to make a difference in these still great United States of America. As his mother and as a fellow United States Citizen, I ask that you support and pray for him and that you stand behind him as he will be standing between you and harms way as he protects all of our freedom.  Today he made the decision to stand and fight for his country and to serve his nation in the Air Force.  It is an HONOR to be called his mother!
"Flying men, guarding the nation's border,
We'll be there, followed by more!
In echelon we carry on. Hey!
Nothing'll stop the U.S. Air Force"
