My child is sleeping in a tent!

I was diagnosed with cervical cancer when Leanne was at boot camp.

I thought I knew my daughter ? until she joined the Army.

It's so overly emotional. The feelings are so mixed. You want to be mad at somebody for them being over there. Then there is the pride and love that I have for her that is so enormous.

It was the toughest time in her life. At times she was sad, and at times she was happy.

She is funny, beautiful, and very loving. We are the best of friends. She is a good kid. I miss her a lot.

She said she didn't want to grow up and do nothing.
