Hi all, I was sitting here looking at this picture and decided to post it.

This is my young man and I just found out a few minutes ago that he is shipping out to a certain mideast country shortly.

What can I say Bob but I'll try..Thats a very good picture of a handsome young man and sorry for my language but you must be DAMNED PROUD, I don't know this fine young fella but I'm proud of him as well as your other friends here at this forum . It's men and women like your dear son that are our future and ENSURE that we do have a future. God bless his heart for helping to make a future for a people that have had nothing but pain in their past. Tell him we love him Bob and return home soon and safe.

Tim, Thank you for the very kind and heartfelt words. His Mother and I are very proud of him and all his fellow service men and women. They all do very fine at a very difficult job, and perhaps they may yet bring peace to a troubled land. I will be sure to pass along your message.

Thank you

Your friend Bob

I have a label sticked on the doorof my working room: "I support our overseas troops" with an America's flag on it eventhough I'm a latvian from Latvia (Baltic sea). So I'm proud of him too!

Bob..................the proudest day in my life was when I went to my Sons graduation. He walked the same walk took the same steps that I did when I was a young MARINE. There is something about MARINES that differ them. If it's the Look the additude or just what they have doneor are going to do I'm not sure what it is. I know when I was a kid growing up, the men in my neighborhood that had been in the Corps were different from the other men. I wanted to be like them. I took the oath to be a MARINE in 1967 and have never looked back. When my Son went in the Corps he went with four of his friends, they all went in together. Maybe some of me rubbed off on these kids. I'd like to think so at least. I found MARINES to be the harshest, and kindest people. He will make you proud. He has no choice in the matter. Afterall he is a UNITED STATES MARINE.

Bob this is something you may want to read to understand your Son and his Corps.

Thanks for the link, sw2cam. I read thru the material there, and enjoyed it. Watching my son graduate in San Diego was awesome. I've never seen anything like it before. I was never in the military, but I now wish i would have joined. He is a different young man than when he left 2 years ago, but the changes are positive.He came home from Okinawa this week to get married to his high school sweetheart and he leaves the 28th of this month for desert training and then on to Iraq. I wish your son God speed and a safe return. i also wish the same thing for his 4 friends. God bless them all.
