My middle son came to me a few years back and out of the blue stated he was joining the Army National Guard! I didn’t see this coming. I didn’t raise my kids around guns even, so he didn’t even know how to shoot! I was afraid! Needless to say he participated in operation Iraqi freedom (the withdrawal of our troops) and I became patriotic (I always thought I was before but I really supported our country since then with much more gusto) I sent boxes over to my son and became educated more in our government and it’s decisions. So,yes indeed I am patriotic and I love my country!
