I Am The Mother of an American Soldier

I give my complete and unwavering support to my soldier. As my daughter serves the people of the United States, so I humbly offer up my prayers for her safety and the safety and health of those she serves beside. I respect her choice to adhere to a strict moral code and system of values that has preserved our great country for over two centuries. I accept that my soldier’s first duty is to her country and I understand that this sacrifice she willingly makes is what keeps our nation great. I will never expect anything but the best from my soldier for I know she is capable. I know that a soldier’s heart is true and strong, and that my soldier will endure. I will never abandon my soldier, my daughter, my love. I will love her unconditionally.  She will know I am there for her, even when she is alone. I am disciplined, emotionally and mentally tough, learning to wait for phone calls and letters or emails home. I, like my soldier, am an expert. I stand ready to do what ever I can do to let my daughter, my soldier, know that we are here for her, beside her, we love her and I will pray for swift destruction of the enemies of our country. I am the person who stood guardian of this woman who has become my soldier, now our guardian of freedom and the American way of life.
