My son the Marine...

My son the Marine...

Postby slk2295 on Mon Mar 15, 2004 10:40 am

My son came over yesterday morning as I was getting ready for church and announced that he has joined the Marines. My father also served in the Marines and was in Viet Nam several times. While I'm tremendously proud of my son, it's also scary with the state of the world. But I know that the safest place for any of us is where ever God wants us to be. He wouldn't be going if he didn't feel it's where God wants him to be. <br>
<br>
I'm sure many of us have family and friends serving our country - please continue to pray for them often. <br>
<br>
Love in Christ,<br>

Hi Laura,<br>
<br>
I noticed your bio says you have 5 kids, if I remember correctly, in some post around here you mentioned that some of them are still young, and you have one that is a marine. Is that right?<br>
<br>
Just for fun - I have 5 kids too, my oldest is a Marine, and my youngest are toddlers (2 yr old twins). In-between I have a boy that's a sophmore and a girls that's a senior. Seems we have a lot in common. What's your son's job? My son is determined to get into recon - argh! <br>
<br>
Love and prayers!<br>

I can barely handle my 2. <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> Anyway, I am praying for both of your boys and also all of our troops.

To Laura and Shanna,<br>
<br>
I have been wanting to post this, but it took me a while to get the graphic I wanted. Back in WWII my Dad was in the Marines. As I am sure you both know the Marine motto is "semper fidelis", "semper fi!", as the cry goes, which means "always faithful". When my Dad passed away in '92 that is what I put on his head stone, Semper Fidelis....Always Faithful. A lot of people have been in the Marine Corps, but there aren't many that have lived up to that motto their whole lives. He did. He spent a lot of time helping others and taking care of his family. I thought about Jesus and if he had a motto it would also be semper fidelis. He is always faithful to us even if we aren't to him.<br>
<br>
Back in WWII there was a thing called a "Mother's Pin". It was a little pin with a star on it. For each son you had in the service, you would have a star on your pin. Moms could wear these proudly and folks would know that you as a Mom were special to this country. You had given something way above time and money. My Grandma had a pin with three little stars as my Dad and his two brothers were in the service. I still have those pins at home. I found a pin for each of you two to wear, even if it is only on your computer screen.<br>

Thank you rsquared - this brought tears to my eyes. My son has just finished moving all of his things from his appartment and putting them in storage at my house. He'll be staying with me for the next couple of days, then leaves Monday morning. <br>
<br>
I'll have to look around and see if I can find one of these pins. <br>
<br>
Thank you again!<br>
