I love the poem, Beanpole's mom! What a journey it's been so far! Those first three months DID NOT fly by for me! But the rest of the year has. Hard to believe this journey started an entire year ago already! I'm so grateful that I had (and still have) my Kilo family for support, friendship and even just to compare notes. Prayers for the safety and well-being of all of you, and all of our Marines!
About a year ago I began a journey with my Marine & met a great group of Marine parents here on this forum who helped me through some of the tough steps along this journey. It was a pleasure to share & learn all that I can. On Parris Island, in April, some of us actually met . It was a bigger pleasure & honor to meet & share a hug with this "forum family". Thank you & congrats & may God keep all out Marines safe on their journeys.
Here's to all our Kilo men, who took the oath just about a year ago Tuesday. Written by an anonymous Marine Mom:
It makes no difference who you were born to,
it makes no difference what state you’re from,
the moment you chose to become a Marine,
you became every parent’s son.
A son to every Mom and Dad
who recognize the importance of your career
the completeness of the man within,
that set the path to which you must adhere.
The day you received your EGA,
filled all these parents with pride,
your family has grown exponentially,
there are thousands at your side.
Wherever your orders may take you,
wherever the fleet must go,
this family is here to lend support
with dedication to you their goal.
There will be joys along your journeys,
at times there may also be tears,
But your parents will be there for you
with prayers, understanding, or cheers
you are cherished and respected
for the man you have become.
Not only are you a U.S. Marine,
you are every parent’s son.

YAY Mom2317! Just in from JFK sending ours back to Ca :( only to have a 4 hr delay. I thought I was going to need a surfboard on the expressway.Yikes! Happy New Year!
Hope my Kilo Family had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends, plus a healthy successful 2014 be upon you!!! Santa delivered our Marine to us Christmas Eve...tears were flowing with joy - a much much needed surprise to both of us. He is here from CA until Jan. 2. I do count my blessings for praying for the heartache of you whom did not get to get a visit from your Marine. Promise to write more when it calms down - I'm still on Cloud 9
