off to war

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
drove down to North carolina,camp Lejeune from Boston to see my Marine off to war.last saturday we had a get together with some other parents. before we left I smoked ten racks of babbybacks and I also brought thirty 14 ounce center cut black angus sirloin steaks. What a feast and the ribs were a big hit. I was told they were very good for a dam yankee. Say a prayer for all of our men and women over seas.

Well thank your son or daughter as they go off to war. Our son is there now in Bagdad on his third tour so I know what you are feeling. It sounds like you gave them all a good send off too. They will really like that food belive me. And when they come back don't forget the BEER the wife is always very popular at their return.

John , I will say a prayer for the safe speedy return of your loved one. Please thank your Marine from me for their service.

I almost said for his service then remembered that Marines can be of either gender. Whichever is the case I thank god for those who serve.

We have some very good friends whose son is still in college but is in the Guard. He left Thursday night for Kuwait. I am sure he is there now. It brings it so much closer to home. May your Marine be blessed, John.

Glad you and the other parents got to go have some good food and spend time with your loved ones before they shipped out. I will continue to pray for our troops. Thank your son and all the others for their service.

Patriots,, may he come home safe, your prayers and support will mean everything to him while gone. Write him weekly or email, he will appreciate for his entire life.

While he has chosen to serve his country and join a long line of Americans who have kept America safe. You too serve, your offering of your son, raising him to respect the price of freedom and the honor of service.

Thanks for sharing with us.

AIRBORNE! Good luck to your serviceman, from someone who has been there. The desert stinks, but it's a good place to BE FROM!

off to war

I want to thank all of you for your kind words and prayers. He will be home and we will smoke ribs and fatties and some abt. And always a brisket. Again thank you. His mom will need some time, but ribs and beer will ease the pain.

There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about everyone in our military whether they're in harms way or not. I feel like I now have a slightly closer tie to someone. John, thanks for sharing your experience with us.
