Daily Life of a Marine Mom

A Piece of My Heart is home from Iraq


Tuesday, March 14, 2006

Well, my son is just a few weeks from coming home and from what I have heard from some other guys in his platoon, they are getting bored because they don't get to go out and patrol anymore (YIPPEEE). Like I keep telling him .. bored is GOOD! At least for mom .

A friend of mine is at her son's homecoming right now! YAH Robin and Rusty! So glad that Rusty is almost back on American soil, safe and sound! OORAH!

Anyone who hasn't heard of Ben Stein's latest column concerning the Oscars needs to read it if you support our troops at all. Here's an excerpt of his column:

[Missed Tribute by Ben Stein]
Hollywood is above all about self: self-congratulation, self-promotion, and above all, self-protection. This is human and basic, but let's not kid ourselves. There is no greatness there in the Kodak theater. The greatness is on patrol in Kirkuk. The greatness lies unable to sleep worrying about her man in Mosul. The greatness sleeps at Arlington National Cemetery and lies waiting for death in VA Hospitals. God help us that we have sunk so low as to confuse foolish and petty boasting with the real courage that keeps this nation and the many fools in it alive and flourishing on national TV.

Read his entire column by clicking the following:
Missed Tributes by Ben Stein. All I can say is AMEN BEN!

And one last note .. my finacee's father, who had MAJOR heart surgery yesterday is doing very well (thank you GOD). He had two valves replaced as well as a triple bybass and a hole in his heart repaired. Its amazing what they can do at the Heart Institute of Indiana. He should feel 20 years younger once he starts to heal up.

Everyone have a great day and of course ..

Semper Fi and God bless you all!

Bored is very good.
Counting the minutes with you until you have boots on the ground.
Hang in there. Won't be long now!
