The TrogloPundit's son joined the Corps today.
My oldest son put his right hand in the air today to become a U.S. Marine. Holy crap, I just fogged up just writing that sentence. What’s it going to be like the day he leaves?Well, Mitchell saw what the Army did to his dad, uncle, and great uncle. He also saw what the Navy did to a great uncle and two great-great uncles. And then he saw what the Marines did to his first cousin, twice removed... he received a Silver Star 'For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action...'
I fogged up pretty bad when we dropped his older sister off at college, too. Y’know, they used to be little. They used to sit in my lap.
Why the Marines?
Little Mitchell... Who'd a'thunk it?
