I was teaching a CE class, today, for our Chapter. We did it at a local motel conference room.
When it was over, the Chapter Pres and a member were helping me carry out the stuff.
Coming in the front door was an older man, pushing a wheel chair with a camo Alice Pack in it.
Behind him was a young man, in cut-offs and a red Marine tee-shirt.
Both his legs were the new, titanium prostetics. He walked with a cane (for support) and a longer, red tipped white cane (for blindness, which I later noticed).
As he came in, I called out “Semper Fi”. He answered, “Hoah!”.
I want up to him, put my hand on his shoulder and told him “Thanks for your service. My Daughter is a plebe at the Academy.”
He responded, “No Sir! Tell her I said thanks. And, thank you, Sir, for raising her.”
I cried all the way home.
Please, pray for these exceptional young people.
