Have You Seen My Son?


Have You Seen My Son?

Have you seen my son? I could swear I saw him rolling across my TV in one of those 9 tons he loves to drive. It's hard to tell on still too small a screen for real life... it's a little blurry (could be my teary eyes). All those guys look so much alike. So many young, proud faces and they all have that same determined "Good to Go” look in their eyes.

So if you see him, give him a hug for me and remind him how proud we are of him. Tell him his mama is looking for him. It's almost dinnertime... and I'm ready for him to come home. The hour is upon us and, so Semper Fi brave Marines: God is in the watch tower... and we will be waiting at the door.
