Happy 235th Birthday to the USMC!

November 10th is a holiday in our house – it’s my husband’s second birthday!  Regardless of the uniform he wears, he’s a Marine, first and foremost.  That mentality and that training never goes away, and it affects how he performs his duties as a Soldier.  He’s been successful in his military career because he is Marine.  Marines tend to flock together and it truly is a brotherhood.  DH formed close bonds with other prior-service Marines when he was in active duty.  He trusted those guys, knowing the background and the abilities that come along with that title.  To know a Marine is to love a Marine.  I can pick out Marines from a crowd and tend to gravitate towards them.  At the

I’m a 31 year old Navy sister, Army wife - Air Force wife to a prior service Marine/Soldier, and an Air Force Reservist. I am a happy wife and mother. My husband switched branches and joined me in the Air Force Reserve. We look forward to a future of dual military service!
