Please, spare me from any more headlines about reservists. I am fed up. My son just reenlisted for his third hitch in the Navy and will be reporting to an aircraft carrier in January, leaving a wife and small son.
My daughter's Reserve unit (naval) is being deployed in January. She leaves a Navy husband and three children.
Now, I ask you, do I only worry or show concern just for her because she's a "reservist"? I am equally proud of both of them and worry and pray for them, and for all our military, be it regular or reservists. They all have a job to do and, I hope, do it to the best of their ability. I will continue praying that they all come home safely.
