Okay so i'm obviously not a "navy mom" but im a 19 year old college student at Bennett College for women. I've always wanted to go into the military and i excelled in JROTC in high school. I"m coming towards the end of my first year of college and i've decided to go to the Navy reserve until i'm finished with school and then go active duty. I probably wont be leaving for basic for a while but i have 12 months to do it. When i told my mom about my decesion she fliped!! It was a mix of all kinds of emotions first she was angry then she was really sad. My moms biggest fear is that i'll be called active duty and deployed. She just keeps repeating how she dosnt want to see her baby girl in anybody's war. As much as i try to reasure her that nothing will happen to me she only expects the worst. She is a single mom and i'm the first to leave, although i'm just a hour away from home she has sever seperation anxiety and gets really sad when i dont come home. She wants me to finish school before i do anything and she thinks that if i got to the reserve that i'll never finish scool. I respect my mothers opinion but i think that i'm old enough to make my own decesions and that its time for me to make my own path with my life. How can i convince her that i'm making the right decesion and that i'll be okay??
