Welcome Home 2/8 Marines & Sailors!

Stopping by to say hi to everyone.  Looks like the daytime temps have been warm at around 110 degrees F over in the sandbox.  Also looks like packages have been arriving in about 7-14 days...not too bad.

I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN-WHEN OUR YOUNGEST SON DEPLOYED TO IRAQ THERE WAS NO COMMUNICATION. WE GOT ALL OUR INFO FROM FOX NEWS. THAT WAS NERVE RACKING.

WOW, WHAT PART OF THE STATE ARE YOU IN? WE ARE OVER IN THE MOUNTAINS CLOSE TO THE TENNESSEE BORDER.

Comment by marinemama32 on May 4, 2013 at 6:56am

I also live in NC.. I have 2 sons, one a marine and the younger is a junior in high school. this was his first deployment, so as you know as a mom, I was scared for him but at least I can talk to him on Facebook. :)

TELL ME MORE ABOUT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. WE HAVE OUR 2 SONS AND OUR YOUNGEST IS A DAUGHTER. WE MOVED TO N.C. IN 2011 FROM FLORIDA. I HAVE M.S. AND THE HEAT WAS REALLY ZAPPING ME. OUR MIDDLE SON IS BACK IN FLORIDA WITH HIS FAMILY AND GOING TO SCHOOL. HE DEPLOYED TO IRAQ 3 TIMES BEFORE HE GOT OUT. THIS IS OUR OLDEST SONS 3RD DEPLOYMENT. HE WAS A D.I. AT PARRIS ISLAND FOR 3 YEARS. OUR DAUGHTER IS HERE IN N.C. GOING TO SCHOOL AND WORKING.
