45. I can't add much to what everyone else has said, Joe
except to assure you that these sensations can definitely be wrong. I don't know you except through our brief "conversation" but I will certainly be thinking positive thoughts for you and your son. I hope you realize, following our PM, that you are welcome to contact me at any time, just to vent, whatever.

I think this is a fear all parents can relate to in one way or another.

About Sgt. Troy: You said he was 3/2; is that 3/2 Marines, or 3/2 ACR? Both are OUTSTANDING units, highly competent, well, well, trained, and they definitely take care of their own. I can only speak for the Marines because both my uncle and my best friend were in that unit, and spoke exceptionally highly of it.

I was in 3/2 ACR, and I know of their abilities, training level and competence (exceptionally high) and loyalty to each other.

Get some exercise, remember to eat healthy (even if you don't feel like it) don't wall yourself off from your friends and those who care about you. Drink lots of water. Try to do something you normally take pleasure in.

No, none of these will erase the fear, but they will allow your mind/body to better deal with the stress you are feeling.

Wish there was something else I could do. :thumbsup: :hug:
