By that time I had met a nice guy and we were going to get married and move away but in the back my mind, I still wanted to go in the military. My mother constantly reminded me that my goal was to go in the military, she said she would take care of my son if I would go in. So I signed up on the delayed entry program and finally in November of 1984. I went off to Basic Training leaving behind my eighteen month old baby boy. I don’t know if I was ready or not but I went and I got through basic training and then AIT.
