This is my 4 year old daughter Lilly. Lilly picked up our latest edition of Sgt Grit today. As she was looking through the magazine she said "look daddy stuff". You see my little Lilly never got the chance to meet her Marine Daddy. He deployed 2 weeks before she was born. On April 1st our Hero Sgt Frank World was KIA in Afghanistan. Our daughter Lilly was only 3 months old… our son was just 3. Just thought I would share with you a cute photo of a Gold Star child looking through Sgt Grit… or as my daughter says looking at daddy stuff.
My name is Rosa Rosales, im submitting a picture of my son Joshua Rosales age 4. Every year for Memorial day we go to The Memorial Day ceremony. We teach our kids what memorial day is really about. I was not in the service, but my husband was Sgt. Juan J. Rosales USMC. He's a huge fan of Sgt.Grits & also Customer.
This was taken at my sons MCJROTC Marine Corps Birthday Ball. This is one of the most Beautiful and memoriable moments of my life. My son bowing his head during the Marine Corps Prayer, I am so very proud of my future Marine, who will be signing his enlistment papers in May of 2014…
I am working with a group of students out of Vista, CA, having the kids write Christmas cards to deployed service members. This was just too good not to share with you. I hope you enjoy. The kids are going to be so excited! It came from Joli Ann Lechtag Elementary in San Marcos, CA.
My dad, brother, and husband all served in the Marine Corps. My oldest son plans on joining, and by the looks of this so does our 18-month old son Lex. Here he is at our computer desk with the Sgt. Grit catalog deciding what he wants us to buy! Everyone in our family loves your catalog!
This little Devil Pup, Nicholas, stopped for a photo-op while his mom, Traci Brown-Guthrie was shopping in the Sgt Grit showroom. Nicholas' father is Sgt Dwain Guthrie who served with 1st Force Recon.
Nicholas is modeling our U.S. Marines Digital Woodland Kids 3-piece short set.
Hey Sgt. Grit Team! I ran across this picture and I realized that I never sent it to you. This was taken a few years back when I had my first child. His name is Gavin. All the items came from your store. I
can't believe that he's going to be six this year. He says he wants to be a Marine like his Mommy and Granddaddy! LOL.
This is Lil Rayray. I'm a Marine Vet and I love the Marine Corps Attire you guys have.
Not yet in the Corps (1 more year 'til 17) but I have a bunch of buddies who are and I made this for them and the rest of our brothers stateside and overseas. The poem is not mine and I do not claim it as so. The pictures I got from Marines.com and put them on there as a visual for those who might see this and not understand.
