    Default The Best Phone Call EVER!!!

    I just got a call from my Son, he just arrived at his Marine base in Southern California after serving his second tour in Northern Iraq.

    I can't tell you how good it feels to know he's back Safe & Sound in the Great U.S.A.

    Now we have to wait until early November until has leave and can come Home to NJ., it's been almost a year since we've seen him.

    Wow, what a Great day!!!!:D

    Default Your son is a HERO

    I am grateful to him and all who serve for answering the call of freedom and defending our liberties. I am equally grateful to the families of those in harm's way for caring and supporting them. Thank your son for his service, and thank you for having the strength to support him.

    Thanks Guys & Gals,

    They're giving him a few days off, so he's spending some time in Palm Springs, then off to Vegas to raise some hell......well deserved R&R.

    Just a Special Thanks to all the Polkie's who responded to my thread and sent Care Packages to the troops...

    Glad he's home safe, especially after two tours. Here is a good book about the US Marines: A combat history from Iwo jima to Iraq. The book is called "American Spartans" by James A. Warren. A must read for Jarheads and parents of Jarheads.

    Thanks Bill,

    His Grandfather (a decorated WWII Veteran) sent this book to him last year. I hope he brings it home with him so I can read it.

    That's good to hear!

    Honestly, the things I've read about your son make me think more about how my parents felt when I had gone to iraq over and over again (3 times). I remember paying her a visit at the school she worked at when I got back, and all her co-workers would tell me how she talked about me every single day, how she cried during lunch and just missed me so much. I hope your son understands what loving parents he has :D

    Good to hear Jimmy. Thank him for his service, I know how tough being deployed is. Probably been deployed about 15 times myself since joining the Air Force in '98, not gone as long as those Marines are, but I go atleast 2 times a year myself, for about 120 days at a time.

    That's great! Let him know that his service and selflessness is very apreciated! And thanks to you for supporting your son's choice. My son is only a toddler and the day that he mentions the possibility of military service I am sure I will be worried and concerned, but I also know I will be proud to have a son who is willing to give for his freedom and all of ours.
