Coping with loved ones in military - August 31st 2009, 10:28 PM

One of my closest friends joined the military early this year. He is a vehicle technician and told me today he would most likely be in danger because he will be in the tanks.

I'm really unsure of how to feel about this. He told me and I broke into sobs. How do you cope with a loved one risking their lives?

Feel free to post your fears/worries.

(I couldn't find another thread like this, sorry if there is one)

Re: Coping with loved ones in military - September 1st 2009, 02:52 AM

It's very difficult to be at home knowing that someone you love is in a dangerous situation. When my cousin was overseas (his training was in disarming explosives) it was a constant source of tension. I don't know that there's any way to be completely fine with it - I think there will always be some worrying. I tried my best to stay positive and hope for his return, and I tried to keep in mind that he was standing up for what he believed in, and tried to be proud of him for it. It didn't work all of the time, there was still a great deal of worrying and even anger at him for going, but a lot of the time it helped, at least a little.

Not around so much now that school's started

"Live a good life.
If there are gods and they are just,
then they will not care how devout you have been,
but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by.
If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them.
If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life
that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."
Marcus Aurelius
