"Have you thought about writing your family history, but found yourself stuck from the start? Writing a family narrative can be a daunting task, but Karen Jones Gowen found a way to bring her mother's story to life." (Homespun Magazine)

I'm Going to be a Marine Mom


  1. You should be proud--it's a big thing. :)

    My son-in-law is a Navy Pilot, and we couldn't be prouder of him (even if I shudder with fear every time I think of him taking off from & landing on those aircraft carriers). My daughter (his wife) volunteers with the Civil Air Patrol--we're just as proud of her.

  2. Wow! What a wonderful feeling!!! Good luck to you and your sons! :-)Looking forward to when you can add !!!! soon! :-)

    Take care

  3. Did he ever read my boot camp stories?
    I don't know if they would inspire him, or cause him to join the Navy...

    The Marine Corps takes it role very seriously. NOBODY, prepares their troops for times like these as well as the Marines (I may be biased, but that is my true feeling). Semper Fi!

    I don't even know him and I'm proud of him already...

  4. Pat,

    yes he DID read your boot camp stories! I told him about them, found the link and he sat down and read them straight through. This from a kid who never reads blogs not even mine. But I surely will make him read your comment here, too. Thank you so much.



I don't post very often, but if you leave a comment I'll know someone is out there reading. And then I will post more! Bwa ha ha!
