This flag was carried on numerous combat missions across Iraq and Afghanistan Our oldest son has served in the U.S. Army for the past 13 years. He’s a West Point grad and has traveled the world, and has been deployed to some pretty scary places. One of the challenges of being a military mom is when your family is separated. It’s not just the missing of birthdays, holidays, graduations, weddings or funerals. When conflicts arise, our military is sent to some of the most perilous places in the world. When that happens it can fill you with worries. And then there are MOMS who serve in the military. I can’t imagine how a family feels when their mom is deployed. Technology has done so much to close the physical distances. Fifteen years ago, there was no FaceTime or WhatsApp, and Skype had just launched. So most families would wait for letters and phone calls. Now, in the blink of an eye, it's possible to see your family’s faces and hear their voices from far away.
