This is our plea to family , friends and follow military touched families . Our oldest son Dawson Miller who just turned 18 in July will be leaving for bootcamp on September 19th . He will be heading to Fort Sill , Oklahoma for his 10 weeks of boot camp . His mos is 68- echo . Which is a dental specialist . After boot camp he will go to his ait school for 11 weeks at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio ,Texas . Then he will go to his duty station . Our son Dawson has made us so proud over the last 18 years . He is the oldest of 5 . He has always helped with all his siblings , made good grades , never got into trouble or asked for to much . We have had many kids come thru our home over the years as we are foster parents and Dawson always welcomed his siblings in his life and heart . So when he told us he wanted to join the military even tho it meant he would be leaving his family , girlfriend of 4 years and friends . He knew it was the best thing for him to do . Which for him was to help people , see the world and get college thru the military . I don't think it has really hit me that my son who I see as my baby will not be here to help make dinner or go get the milk I forgot at the grocery store . But as I write this plea I know it will hit me as the days grow closer when my baby not only becomes a man but a soldier . With all this happening so fast . We have pretty much came to the realization that his boot camp is 21 hours away . And with gas , hotel , tissues , food , and the pay that my husband and I will miss to attend Dawson's bootcamp graduation that will only be about 13 weeks from now . I'm overwhelmed and someone told me about trying a "go fund me account" to help make this possible . And of course "Santa" still has to come about 3 weeks following that for our 3 little ones . So this is my families plea ! My Plea for me and my husband to see our sons boot camp graduation . We are and will forever grateful for any help . We are just an average , hard working family trying to be there for our oldest son's special moment ! Thank you from all of us , The Miller's
