    New Today

    Hi all -Mum to a young son in 3 Para currently serving in Afghan - his first posting. Only got to wait until mid-October to see his smiley face again. Found it really, really hard and am constantly thinking of him these past few months. It was his birthday and I tried to imagine how he felt being so far away from us all. Wish I knew about this site earlier and I feel better for posting these few words!!! Good luck to you all

    Welcome to RP marjorie!

    We've a few mums and dads here already, so you're certainly not alone. Get stuck into the forums and feel free to contribute to threads and start new ones. If you've any problems or queries, just post a message or PM one of us Mods.

    Hope you enjoy the site!
    Dozy

    PS Let your son know about this site so that he can tell his friends to tell their families. The more members we have, the more experiences can be shared and the less alone people will feel...
    Holy Cow!

    Life is not the amount of breaths you take, it's the moments that take your breath away.

    I am writing to my son today and I certainly will let him know all about this site in the hope that a few other parents can come and chat too - I know I am not the only one in the boat - so to speak!

    Hello Marjorie,
    It will be interesting to read about how things are from a Mothers perspective, I hope you enjoy the site. It seems like everyone has a tale to tell about one thing or another, I have found RP to be a great disraction on the sadest days.

    Hi Marjorie and welcome to RP. That was some great advice from dozy bint, we are from all sides of the ocean and have lots or little experience but the more of us the merrier and the more experience shared.
    We all look forward to hearing more from you.
