Mom Creed


"I am the mother of an American Airman" I give my complete and unwavering support to my Airman. As my son serves the people of the United States, so I humbly offer up my prayers for his safety and the safety and health of those he serves beside. I respect his choice to adhere to a strict moral code and system of values that has preserved our great country for over two centuries. I accept that my Airman's first duty is to his country and I understand that this sacrifice he willingly makes is what keeps our nation great. I will never expect anything but the best from my Airman for I know he is capable. I know that an Airman's heart is true and strong, and that my Airman will endure. I will never abandon my Airman, my son, and my love. I will love him unconditionally. He will know I am there for him, even when he is alone. I am disciplined, emotionally and mentally tough, learning to wait for phone calls and letters or emails home. I, like my Airman, am an expert. I stand ready to do what ever I can do to let my son, my Airman, know that we are here for him, beside him, we love him and I will pray for swift destruction of the enemies of our country. I am the person who stood guardian of this man who has become my Airman, now our guardian of freedom and the American way of life. "I AM THE MOTHER OF AN AMERICAN AIRMAN."

Thanks to your son for his service, and to you for your support. I've written a creed for veterans, of any branch, that you might find interesting.
