Six years ago, my son Matthew joined the Marines. I remember feeling proud and overwhelmed with fear about his decision. Looking back, I remember taking him to Spokane for the signing in process. As my husband and I drove away, we knew that our son’s decision had forever changed his life. I remember the day we attended his boot camp graduation in San Diego. Our family respectfully rose to our feet and tears were shed as we honored our son. Then, the day I feared came, he received his orders to be deployed to war. The only thing besides faith that got me through those uncertain times was the support and love from our friends and family. I am blessed to say he returned home safely and is currently serving in Nevada with his wife, Wilikinia.

Today is the 235th birthday of the United States Marine Corps, as a proud mom of a Marine, “Ooo-rah” to all of our Marines! And tomorrow is Veteran’s day, what a perfect time to thank all of our family and friends that have served or who are still serving our great country. Regardless of our views on warfare, we cannot deny the commitment and sacrifices of our military.

Let’s remember and respect the great sacrifices made by our veteran’s. Let’s show compassion to the military families. Let’s show honor for those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice by giving their lives while serving our country. In closing, “Thank you” to all of you who have served our great country.
