    I know some will say just kill yourself hillbilly, I would never do that unless something happens to my son. Has anyone had to deal with this? This consumes me as I guess it should. He is a Marine and I am damned proud of him.

    Think of it as his chance to make the world a better place by taking out a bunch of subhumans.

    Wow, I can't imagine how painful this must be. And at the same time, how proud you must feel (at least about your son's dedication to his country). I have no advice as my child is only 4, and I can't imagine her leaving me. But, sending you and your family warm thoughts from WI.

    Have him ship back some opium from the poppy fields he'll be guarding.

    With the way you go on, are you sure he's your son?

    Does the water bead off his hair? Does he pronounce -er as uh when he's rhyming?

    Very true,but I am positive on him and my others. The boys look like my high school pics and remember how we hillbillies look alike. She didn't go all coon until 18 into the marriage.

    I thank the well wishers, I nearly cry or do to tell the truth just thinking about it. have to hide it though. I remember when he graduated from boot camp at Parris Is, I wasn't the only man to shed a few...many,many did as well. Huge fucking sacrifice. The gov't absolutely do not take care of their Marines. They are low paid and may use a over 1/2 months pay getting home. They pay for their food on base (it is deducted) and on the weekends the best eat at whatever place is on base. I think the Marines should be taken care of,like these worthless cocksuckers who milk the gov't for all the freebies.


    There is a chance we may not see him for 2 yrs, just on a screen. I would be tempted to dissolve a lorcet 10 and spike a drink. He would be discharged, dishonorably probably but goddamn, what is the alternative possibly? better than coming home in a box.

    How is Obama's surge in Afghanistan going? You never hear about soldiers being killed there anymore. Aren't we scheduled to surrender and abandon ship pretty soon?

    As a former Marine this might help. tell him to Be aware of everything and everyone around him at all times. And to do his job well but also with caution for himself. God be with him.

    No Marine ever refers to themselves as a former Marine. :grad:
