Life is a series of milestones. My son Kieran reached a big one in November of this year. Kieran became a United States Marine.
Kieran’s Mom and I made the trip down to MCRD Parris Island for the graduation ceremony and talk about a trip down memory lane! It’s been a long time since I was there and most everything had changed except for the sound of drill instructors and the looks on passing recruits faces. And my barracks. I saw my old home shortly after we arrived and a lot of memories came flooding back. Some good, some bad.
Now my son has his own memories. It was fun seeing him on “family day” and he looked great as he showed us around the island. He was there for 13 weeks and the journey was a tough one. The pride was evident, both his and mine.
He is now a member of the club.
