We attended Family Day and Graduation last week. That was the most impressive thing we have ever been a part of. Ranks in the top three... Getting married, birth of a child, Marine Graduation. WOW!!!

getting married was number 1? ... that's interesting... wait until you see a full Military Wedding... that'll trump YOUR getting married for sure.

:D

I had to be politically correct in the event my wife was reading the post. We thought we were ready for Family Day and Graduation and we have never been so proud. It was something that every American must attend!!!

seriously though... if your son get's married (hopefully at the end of his contract which will simplify his life) that you all get to see the full on military wedding... it's freaking motivating.

I was also at Family Day/Graduation this past Friday, Aug 28th, but at Parris Island. You look like you were at San Diego.
It was an AWESOME time and brought back sooooooooo many memories. Loved it!
CONGRATS to you and your family...and to the new Marine in your family! :thumbup:

LAS : Was that the most amazing moment? Yes... we were in San Diego. Hot as the sun but we did not care. Congrats to you and your Marine. In this day and age I wish more people would experience what we have... makes the US of A stand still. God Bless and ever forward!!!
