My son is my hero, GO ARMY

I realized this morning when I was making a card, that I hadn't made a card for my son for Veteran's Day so I  knew I had the perfect sentiment from TLC.  My son is attending college and in the Army Reserves; however, he has applied to go for Active Duty.  I know that he prefers the military life which is hard for me because I think it is a great service it is just that they take away all their rights.  So I can't call when I want or visit when I have time off.  They have so many restrictions and they haven't done anything wrong unlike people who are jail who happen to have more rights.  For all the people who serve I naturally don't want any harm to come to them since I do feel that they take such a risk to defend us.
So Happy Veteran's Day to all who do or have served and to Best Wishes to their families!
