Amen! I have my "Proud Family of a U.S. Marine" sign posted again today in my yard.
My baby faced Marine (Step-Son) did not have a say when they decided to take him out of college to go defend US in Iraq. He did his duty and put his life on the line 24/7 for us. Fortunately, he has returned home, and is back in school. They do not ask....they just go do their job, and do it well.
Thank God for those like him. We can never re-pay what they do for US.
(Jerry, my sig line on my work computer contains, "Proud Dad of a USCG Son!" and I mean it! We also fly the USCG flag 365 days a year and have, since he came home from boot....Bud)
