Hello, Marine Moms
To the editor:
My husband, John, was in the Corps for six years. He’s no longer on active duty but as you are aware, “Once A Marine, Always A Marine.” My father was one of the ‘Chosen Few’ (Korea). My oldest brother is another “Once-Always Marine,” as well as one of my husband’s brothers. I also have a brother who was in the Army National Guard, and another of my husband’s brothers has just gotten out of the Navy (but still active in the reserves) after several years of service. He was in our present war and was wounded along with Marines he was serving with, My husband’s father (deceased like my father) was career Navy and my husband’s step-father was also in the Navy I won’t even begin relating all the other extended family who have served in our military but most all the men in my family have served their country.
