Been a tough day here. My trapping buddy and the one who got us into trapping left for Paris Island today. Gonna be a rough 13 weeks. Please send prayers his way to be strong. He's the one closest to the camera.

Charles- He has been the most patriotic young man I know. He considers it his duty. Has been thinking about this for a few years.

Been there. Watched one son take off to the Air Force & another to the Army. It is tough, but it also makes you proud of them. He will be all right Dad, trust me.

Myself and both my sons are in the military. It's bitter sweet but I know you're a proud papa. Congrats! I'm sure he'll do great!

Get some! I'm not a parent but I am a Marine. Gotta be tough I can imagine. My dad refused to see me off to boot camp.

You did good in raising him be proud.


�Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves. � � Winston Churchill

He will be fine. That brings back memories when I left for basic training way back in 1969. The first day or two seem to be the hardest, after that one starts to adjust.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.
