Blue Star Mom Recalls Son’s Call Before Deploying

Blue Star Mom Tracie Ciambotti over the last two days has shared her personal thoughts and anxiety about her son’s upcoming third deployment. The first two were in Iraq, this time he’s headed to Afghanistan.

It seems appropriate to introduce you to a former Blue Star Mom, Sue Diaz. She’s a journalist who contacted me offering to share a video she produced. The You Tube video is made from excerpts of her book, “Minefields of the Heart.” The book’s subtitle: a mother’s stories of a son at war.

My thanks to Sue who not only writes – she teaches writing workshops for veterans at the San Diego Vet Center. Diaz also started a blog for their posts: The Warriors Wall.
