My son is turing 18 soon and announced that he wants to go into the army. Iam freaking out that is the last place I want my son god the thought of him going to iraq or any war scares the hell out of me. I tried to talk to him about the national guard but no . I guess if things were better in our country I would be OK but were undr constant threat. I don't know what to do? I want to talk him out of it I am so scared for his future let alone his life.
