My Son left for Parris Island June 20th
Posted By: Wendy Burch 06-27-11
This is one of the hardest things I have ever had to do! I have put my Son in the hands of God and the Marine Corps. My son has wanted this since he was 3 years old. God how I miss him and have cried. I am extremely proud of him and can't wait to get the first letter. The phone call I received was around 2300 hundred hours June 20th and it was a recording of someone else wasn't even my son, therefore I cried myself to sleep. I have been told a Marine mom is the hardest job!
