I am a 17 year old mother of a 8 month old little boy. My fiance (and the babys father) has just joind the army for a 4 year inrollment. i've know him for 4 years and i love him and our son so much. When he told me he dicited to join the army i didnt know what to think, and i still dont. i know his reasonings for doing this, and that it was going to be good for our small family. However I'm so nurvouse that when he gets done with his basic training, an ect. and gets into active duty that he could get hurt. we plan to get married and have me and our little one move down onto the base with him. But im still nurvouse and not sure how to handle it all along with caring for a little one alone all the time.
