My mini Marine

My mini Marine

Hi, my name is Ashley and my husband is a former Marine. When I met and fell in love with him, he was an active-duty Marine serving at HQBN 1MARDIV, and the Marine Corps has always played a role, one way or another, in our lives. So, when we found out we were having our first child, I could not wait to find Marine Corps-themed clothes for the Devil Pup. So, I naturally turned to Sgt. Grit and found the cutest outfit. When I bought it, I purposely purchased it a little big so that she could spend more time in it since children have a tendency to grow at an alarming rate. This gave us the added bonus that everyone would be able to read it as we ran around. I gave it to my husband when we found out we were having a girl. She is now 13 months old, and it barely fits, so I guess it will soon be time for a larger version. It is one of her favorite outfits and she is constantly bringing it to me so that she can wear it. My husband recently turned 30, and he is always looking for good USMC gear. The problem is that I waited too late to order from your fine catalog, so I sent my mother by your brick-and-mortar store to pick up what I wanted to get him. Thank you so much for all you do! I thought I would send you pictures of our Leatherneck-in-training sporting her favorite outfit. Her father and I will be proud of her no matter what she decides to do in life, but we would feel extremely honored if she were to carry the colors forward as one of the few, the proud, the Marines.
