Today is the 237th birthday of the United States Marine Corps. I’m thankful that the Marine Corps has given my son a sense of purpose. It has not always been easy being a Marine family, with 2 deployments and him being stationed in California. But he is a better young man because of it and we are a better family. We are incredibly blessed that we have been given the opportunity to be his family and I am extremely proud of him and what he is doing with his life. I’m excited for him as he begins this next phase of his life.
