My Marine went in November 2011 to Paris Island. He's not in 2/6. He is a reservist. I'm the moderator for this board.

Yes, they both were in the delayed entry program here in Traverse City.  Timothy went to San Diego in July of 2011.  Denita, when and Where did your Marine go to boot-camp?  Will he be deployed this year as well?

Good to hear from you Kathleen,
It can be quiet around here but perhaps a few others will chime in. You must be proud to have your younger son serving as well.

Hello 2/6 Marine family and friends, my son came to 2/6 in Jan. and is part of Fox Company.  I thought it would be good to begin to touch base with others as they prepare/train for deployment in a few months.  It has been a while since I scoured these sites every day for info. on our oldest son's platoon during his 2 tours in A-stan.  The folks were such an encouragement to each; I was hoping to find folks this time around for our younger son's deployment.  Looking forward to chatting with you.

Hi everyone !
Please check out this link to vote for a Sgt. in the Marine Corps for American Hero of the Year. The deadline for voting is just a few days (Sept. 6) from now. The Sgt. is one of five finalists for American Hero of the Year and the only Marine::
Thank you!
