Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

Semper Fi......

Happy Birthday USMC............. To all Marines everywhere.
Thank you for your service. Thank you for what you do for your country. In my family both my boys became US Marines. My daughter married a man who was a Marine. They later divorced but he is still in our family even now. We are a pretty close knit family. 103_0004 They were all so young. Apart from this immediate family, my nephew Greg Schaub was a Marine and my son in laws family had their share. greg I remember the days that my granddaughters would go with their Dad to the Marine Corp Ball. That would be on the Marine Corps birthday. There were some good days when my boys Jason and Justin were serving. They were based in North Carolina and South Carolina and we would go down for vacations. My daughter and her husband were usually in North Carolina so we got to see all of them when we went down there. and of course the grandkids too. We had some good times down there. I thank God that the days that they spent overseas were not during war time. I honestly do not know how wives and family stand it knowing their kids are in constant danger. You do what you have to do but I pray that we bring all of our service men and women home very soon. us-marine-corps-hawk

Lovely pictures, and yes, they all looked so very young.
We owe so much to our service men and women.
