Welcome to Son to Soldier. We started this blog as a way to journal our son's journey to become a soldier and a medic in the U.S. Army (HOOAH!) This has been and continues to be an exciting adventure for our entire family. We have covered lots of new territory and continue to learn more and more every day. We will be posting son's letters, pictures, and will try to keep you updated. And I'm sure we'll also have lots of posts from Mom since she's just a tiny bit proud!! I LOVE being an ARMY MOM!

(*I absolutely hate having to put a big ole watermark on front of my photos. In order to keep from doing this, I ask that you please ask permission before copying or downloading pictures. Thanks :)

A Combat Medic's Prayer

Oh Lord, I ask for the divine strength
to meet the demands of my profession.
Help me to be the finest medic,
both technically and tactically.

If I am called to the battlefield, 
give me the courage to conserve our
fighting forces by providing medical 
care to all who are in need.

If I am called to a mission of peace,
give me the strength to lead by caring for
those who need my assistance.

Finally, Lord help me take care
of my own spiritual, physical,
and emotional needs.
Teach me to trust in your presence
and never failing love.
