A Message from One of our Facebook Friends

Sgt. Grit,

My Dad Bob Maher graduated from high school in 1953 and immediately joined the United States Marines. My Dad spoke for years of his service to the Corp and the country and he spoke a lot about Paris Island and that it was one of the most important and proud times of his life. About a year ago when he was able to still carry on a conversation he talked about the Marine Corp, knew the Marine Corp Birthday knew who Chesty Puller was and more even though with his late stages of Parkinson’s' it was hard for him to remember me. I keep him enrolled in the Marine Corps League and the American Legion detachment in Waltham Mass. His room at Marist Hill Nursing Home Waltham Mass has plenty of memories of the Marine Corp. My Dad went on to become a Deputy Fire Chief on the Waltham Mass Fire Dept. but overall the Marine Corp clearly stood by as one of his most important accomplishments and endeavors. If you know of any other retired Marines who would have ideas for me here is the link to my Facebook Profile – my dad can no longer talk but I read a lot of Marine and Military magazines and tell him stories hoping he it gets into him. Got Bless all Military and especially all retired and active U.S. Marines

From my Dad,
Semper Fi

Sincerely,
Timmy Maher Waltham
Massachusetts.
