My friend Kate attended her son Chris's graduated this past week from Parris Island. Here is his picture and her note about the ceremony.
God's protection, Chris, and thank you for your commitment to our country.
Thank you, too, Kate. I know personally what your sacrifice is.
"Chris looks great and his attitude is awesome!
The Emblem ceremony was incredible! We got front row seats and he was front row, so we could clearly see him! He cried; we all cried. Tears of pride and relief.
Chris has kept the pics of Heidi in a safe place in his locker; they are a Band of Brothers and how amazing is that?"
