My Daughter's Boyfriend Is Off To Marine Boot Camp
My daughter's boyfriend is off to Marine boot camp in mere hours now. They have spent a lot of time together over the last couple of days before he leaves. I know she will miss him...
My thoughts and prayers are with him as he embarks out on this journey. My thoughts are also with his mother. I remember my own feelings several years ago when my own son went off to Marine boot camp.
I still remember watching him get on that bus and finally as they pulled out, his tears started to flow and so did mine! They leave as boys and come back as men. I also remember thinking, yes, I will see him again but he will no longer be the same. It is a rite of passage so to speak...
Anyway, I know my daughter will miss him terribly. He is a very good boy and I like him a lot. They have been together for a couple of years now. She will be attending college while he is off at Marines.
I wish all the best for him and his future. Our country needs more good young men like this!
