    Hello happy parents, are you going to see him Graduate? My Mom came to Paris Island when I did, sure meant a lot to me back in Nov. 1963. James A Bevis

    Waiting for one to finish is harder than being there.

    I completed Parris Island in late October 1976. My son completes on November 20th 2009. I thought the three months i was there were the longest ever but i was wrong this three months were even longer. We have reserved 5 rooms on MCAS Beaufort and have almost 20 family members going, 6 are Marines. This is the proudest day of every Marines journey and should be shared with as many family members as possible. Nothing like a Parris Island Graduation. I believe my sons graduation makes me more excited then mine. SEMPER FI

    WOW I just realized I haven't really been on this site since my son was in bootcamp 2 yrs ago! Hey Stacey! I am the Mom of a Soldier & a Marine. It is a tough job being the parent of a service member but someone has to do it. It has been a totally different experience from being an Army Wife for 22 yrs that is for sure. My younger brother has been a Marine for 16 yrs and he was so happy when one of his nephews followed in his footsteps. Both Ken & Justin graduated from PI as did Ken's wife. Ken is currently deployed to Afghanistan and Justin is stationed at Lejeune, He is a tech for the amphibious assault vehicles. Not much longer and your son will be graduating!! Don't forget the tissues!!

    We were lucky and had Justin home for a month. He had his 10 days leave plus 20 days as his Recruiters assistant.

    I think this time of year is the best weather for boot camp at Parris Island. I went to boot camp 23 Sept 91 - 20 Dec 91. I have to admit though, it was only 9 degrees when we graduated. Standing out there in a skirt and pantyhose... it was so cold but we didn't care, it was one of the best days of our life.
