I had a Long ride on my harley today with my son.
He just Inlisted in the Marines Yesterday and will be going to basic training around Nov or Dec. when all the paper work is done.
He's my only son but he needs to find his own way in life.
Im at a loss for words on this subject, I just dont want him to go to Irac, but im pretty sure he will,I just hope if he does, he will come home.

My dad has been in the reserves for 30+ years, just now retiring. A few guys I went to high school with went into the marines and went to Iraq. Old, Boyd just went back for his 3rd tour in Iraq. He runs the .50 cal on the top of the hummers. Lets not forget why our service men and women are over there! Thanks to those who are making the sacrifices for our country! It really blows my mind how ungrateful some people can be....

Yes and they are the ones who need to be sent over there. The land of the free, well freedom is not free. Thanks to all that have served and that are going to serve. I wish my son would join and maybe it would straighen him out a little.

I am very glade for the men and women that serve for our country.
So we can have the freedom that we have.
I feel kinda selfish that i wouldnt want my son going over there.
But i am proud that he finally figured out what he wanted to do in life.

It's a family tradition in my family. Had someone serve in every conflict since the war of 1812 (at least that's the furthest back we have been able to research), mine was Bosnia and lost an uncle in Vietnam. Sometimes I sit there and wonder what will happen when my boys turn 18. It is a mixed emotion I am sure, while I hope it stops with me I know how much I benefitted from all of it. To all of the family and loved ones that saw us off and supported us while we were there, we salute you as well.

Support Our Troops
"Semper Fi"

"Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they
protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts
they perform for us in our time of need. Amen."


Wheels3, My hat is off to your husband. I have a lot of people I know in Iraq.
The Marine Corps has been a Family Tradition for us. My father made 2 beach landings during WWII. (Iwo Jima and Peleliu) I had one cousin on the Bataan Death March, but escaped and spent 3 yrs in the jungle with the Phillipenos, A cousin at "Frozen Chosin" during Korea. And I did 27 months (66 thru 68) in the "Nam" as a Marine "Grunt". Khe Sahn during the '68 Tet was my thing.

The above is my signature on all e-mails I send and I figure if anyone reads it, then an extra prayer goes out.

I did ten years in the Michigan Army National Guard. 126th Infantry. 1990 to 2000. Got out because of medical problems stemming from an auto accident in 1998. Got hit by a 20 year old drunk driver. A few years after I got out, I was feeling a lot better. Too late to get back in then. Was told no because of medical history. Should have stayed in and made them kick me out. Oh well.

I did some time, but never did any "real" time like the men and women are doing today. My hat goes off to them sacrificing and to those that have made the ultimate sacrifice.......

Wink Another Gun-Bunny

Two years at Fort Sill where I frequently laid my battery 3200 mils (180 degrees) out.
In my spare time I took courses in EOD, and invented and patented a 20-yard firing lanyard, enabling me to fire the weapon from behind a truck.

My dad was in the Navy for 30 years...retired as a Senior Chief Hospital Corpsman. He did a tour in Viet Nam and my late ex-husband was also a Navy Corpsman and did a tour in Nam before I knew him though. He got out when his tour ended in Norfolk, VA and that was like 31 years ago.

I want to just rip the heads off these anti military goonies that live around here. Nobody wants war but sometimes there isn't much choice. I keep thinking if these idiots hate the United States so much they should just move their hind ends to Iraq or wherever it is they think is so "great".
