    Stay safe and get your butts home soon! We will be waiting. Semper Fi. Mary, my thoughts are with you and yours as you go through this deployment, mine leaves soon. May they all stay safe and come home to us. Hugs to you and I also agree with what you said about thanking those wives who stay true to their Marines while they are gone. You give truth to the words Semper Fi!

    Michelle: Agreed. The need all the support they can get. I had the pen to the paper heading that way but decided to think about it for a little while longer. I respect these people greatly and thank you for all you do in an attempt to keep our country the way it was and is.
