Dear Sgt. Grit,
My son just deployed with 1/1. I am so proud of him, and all our marines!!! OOHRAH!!!. He was working at a part time job just floating around after graduation from high school.. A retired Marine he worked with kept telling him he would never make in the Corps. Everyday my son would take the bus home, and the bus would drive by the recruiter building. One day he called me and said ” Mom I did it!!”……..and the rest will be history.
