Ooh rah, Marine! :o) I'm a former Marine wife and damned proud of it! Being a M.W. was the best job in the world...right up until I stepped on a damnit at 5 am trying to get up to make him breakfast and pack his lunch. lol Boy, howdy did they name those suckers appropriately 'cuz every time you step on one.....LOL!
My Marine is coming to see me August 24! I cannot wait! He's been overseas since June 2011 on various deployments and jobs. Got to see him over the holidays in December and cant wait to see him again this summer!
The toughest S.O.B. i have ever know has been USMC for 25 years. He served twice each in Iraq and Afghanistan and is fighting for his life now from freaking thyroid cancer. God Bless everyone who serves to protect our freedom!
lisa, that's awesome! My boyfriend is a marine and it's really difficult for troops to get home when they're needed. They miss out on so much while they're gone and it makes me feel good that there are people to help! keep it up!
