I am now officially the parent of United States Marine
Well guys I know I havent been on line much lately, but these last few weeks we have had a lot going on here at home. Last weekend my oldest son, who is 19, graduated. And today, only seven days after his graduation, my son left for boot camp with the United States Marines. He enlisted for eight years, and said he plans on making his career with the service.
Having served nearly ten years in the service myself, I have to say that I sooo proud of him for joining up, but on the other hand, I have to admit I have a lot of apprehensions to him joining up for a career in the service when our country is losing so many men and women every day in a war that I personally dont think we should be fighting.
So I guess today is a day of mixed emotions, I am happy and sad all at the same time.
Anyway, I know this has nothing to do with bow shooting, but I just felt like talking
So anyway take care,
