Our Military Tree

Our tree is covered with flags representing all branches of the service to honor our son Vince, a first lieutenant in the Marines serving his second tour of duty in Iraq during another Christmas season. And for all those are fighting for our country. So that we can continue to enjoy our freedoms without fear of reprisal on U.S. soil. May God Bless and keep you and yours!

New Corps Warrior with Ka-Bar

The young Marine I wrote you about several weeks ago, for whom I bought the ka-bar, is now home with his family for the holidays. I gave him the ka-bar at Christmas and he was very pleased with it. I have included a photo of the two of us, Old Corps and New Corps for your viewing pleasure. Hope you like it. L/Cpl Tyler Liggett is a dedicated warrior and will go far should he decide to stay in the Corps. He is intelligent, strong and ready to serve his country.

LCpl Leondard’s tree

My son went to boot camp Oct. 15, 2007 / graduated 1/11/08 ~ graduated MCT 3/3/08 – graduated MOS at a FIELD MP 6/11/08 and departed 9/26/08 for the SAND till April 09. This is our 2nd year apart during all the holidays that mean so much to family along with his birthday in April. When he signed we all did and with pride and love for him and our GREAT COUNTRY I take one day at a time till he is back on American soil. I have decorated his room with 2 trees that will be up till he returns with his Christmas waiting for him. I want to THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for your newsletters, site and store. They have all helped me a GREAT deal and my husband SWEARS to people that we now have a Marine museum and that Sgt. Grit calls me when they need something that they don't have in stock. HA HA! I have filled my home and wardrobe with MANY wonderful things from your store and hope someday to be able to visit you in Oklahoma and hug the necks of those that assist me in my collecting. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
