don-o is a member of FreeRepublic, this weekend he is going to watch his son graduate from Marine Basic training. Please pray for this Hero's safety and congratulate him. He's One Proud Papa.
Semper Fi, Private!
The day my youngest son graduated from marine boot was the proudest day of my life. That was almost 6 years ago and he is stationed 20 miles from home (finally). Go MCRD San Diego!!
Godspeed and congratulations and thank you.
Pass the Grats!!
God bless, him, his family, and son. I had the opportunity to watch my brother graduate at Paris Island, in 1968. He is a proud Marine, and I am a very proud brother.
Congrats to don-o and his Marine son!
My nephew graduated from basic at Parris Island back in November - I used to joke with him that he’s a “goooooood boooo-ah”. Now I have to tell him that he’s a good MAN!
Semper Fi, FRiend! Prayers up for the one who is defending us all.
Congrats!! Going to my nephew’s graduation on Jan. 31. Good luck and prayers go with you guys.
Congrats to your son and you and your wife, don-o!
You did good Don-o! We’ll pray for your boy like he is one of our own because now he is.
You have every right to be proud of your son Don and my Prayers are with all of you now and forever.
My only claim to fame was getting booted out of the boy scouts and we can discuss that in private on the Nascar threads...
A fine job you did there sir, a fine job indeed.
Congrats and May the Lord Keep them all safe and sound.
Congratulations to your son on his graduation.
Eternal graditude from myself and my family for raising such a fine young man. Your sacrifice is most appreciated.
You have a most wonderful time celebrating your Nephew’s graduation.
Be proud and stand tall.
A side benefit is that you get to brag it up.
