EXTRA! EXTRA! COMING SOON!
For those of you who have been following my posts for awhile, this proud old Papa is heading to San Diego tomorrow. Thursday I will be on the MARINE CORPS RECRUIT DEPOT for the first time in 51 years. I will watch my grandson receive his EAGLE, GLOBE AND ANCHOR in cermonies late Thursday morning after he cleans up when he finishes his last Motivational Run as a recruit. When he is handed his emblem he will become a official UNITED STATES MARINE. He will then be given base liberty and allowed to visit with all of us who attend. Then on Friday he will march in his last parade on MCRD and officially graduate.
So stand by and I’ll describe in more detail than you probably want, the whole two days, when I return home. Next week I’ll have the chance to sit and spend some one -on- one time with him and hear all his tale’s of his 13 week experience. More fodder for this missive of mine.
And for those of you who are following the El Paso long winded story, I hope to wind it up soon also.
