My son is assigned to the MRP as of today.  He has a stress fracture of his femoral neck and is on crutches for now.  This is his 6th week at Parris Island.  I got to talk to him tonight...and I guess he got yelled at for that.  This is a totally different road.  I was just getting used to him being there.  God is in control.

Deb, I will pray for you and your recruit also. My recuit has been in mrp 9 days but we still haven't receivedva letter from after he's talked to the doctor. Probably tomorrow. Lea's advice is good. My recruit said in a letter that hanging around the more positive ones helps. The immobility is boring. Letters take a long time. Be patient.

No, it is not easy.

No, They and trheir Injury are all that matters, and You (and this SUX BIG) are their responsibility to inform.  Not the Corps.  I am NO HS Councellor or Teacher or Principle that is required to tell you anything.  That is the Recruit's Job.  HE/SHe and her ability to return is MY ONLY CONCERN.  If your Recruit does not listen or communicate to you properly, I suggest you take it up with your Recruit.

I am here to FIX the Injury and Get this Recruit BACK in the Game!

SUX to be a Marine parent and Loved ONE. 


First and Foremost, ALWAYS, the Safety of the Recruit!

Good or "Not So Good!"



The one Thing not able to be Taught, even at Boot.....wd

Thank you for all of the prayers and support. I did get a phone call from David tonight. At first it was the official form to be read.  I was nervous and took down the info.  Then he got relaxed and he sounded good. he did say that there are people worse off then him. We are writing and being supportive.

I am proud to be a future Marine Mom  but i am already, I think a Marine Mom.

Thanks trying not to cry...really.
