My youngest son went active duty last month and is on the Mexican border with the National Guard (he's Air Guard). He will be there 'till next June, but could drive home in a few hours if the command let him. So, should I put up my Blue Star banner or is that only for sons and daughters in a combat zone? The Blue Star Mothers gave it to us during his second deployment to Iraq. I don't wanna' be disrespectful of families with kids that are really being shot at.
I would like to hear from members with sons and daughters serving our country and from my fellow vets.
Display the Blue Star banner 'till he comes home or am I being a overly proud doofus (which I am anyway)?
