My Son - My Marine - My Hero

My Son – My Marine – My Hero

LCpl Lindsey in a sandstorm I am so proud of my Marine, LCpl Daniel Lambert. Daniel fulfilled a boyhood dream in September 2007 when he completed boot camp at Parris Island – he was a Marine! But to me I am proud of my son for more than being a Marine. When he graduated from high school in June of 2007 he was a honor student and had been accepted at NC State University and was recruited by a small college in NC to play football. However, Daniel choose to follow his dream and leave for boot camp just two weeks after graduating. Daniel just returned from a seven month deployment overseas and is expected to deploy again in early 2010. Daniel’s grandfather served in the Navy in World War II and a very special man he “adopted” as his grandfather served in the Army in World War II. These two men are Daniel’s heroes but MY HERO is my son – my Marine – LCpl Daniel Lambert!
