Proud Pop

This weekend we went to visit our son at college. It was a great trip as always but also a very important one for our son and also my husband. My son was finally issued his Cammies..his Marine Marpat. I kind of get why it was so important...kinda. I have been moved by my son in his JROTC uniform in High School and in his Khaki uniform in ROTC. But for him and my hubs the Cammies were pivotal. I guess it is because his cammies are identical to his dads. It's almost for me like when he was little and played dress up in his dads cammies except now they are his and he isn't playing dress up. Every step of this journey has been amazing, it's not over yet, he has a ways to go but I know he will make it and I know he will be an awesome addition to the Corps. He loves the Corps, and I am so happy he found early what his passion was and I am even more thrilled he is on this journey and embraces it.

What a journey he is on.....what a fine young man.
