I am the mother of two sons in the United States Marine Corps. When people learn this fact, one of the first things they say is “you must be so proud” or “you must be worried about them going overseas”. The answer to both of these is a resounding “YES”. However, when I tell my sons how proud I am, they don’t believe it is a big deal or when I show concern about them being deployed, they simply shrug and tell me not to worry.
These young men and women who make the choice to serve their Country don’t do it for the recognition or to be honored by their civilian family and friends. Their reasons are as unique as they are. It doesn’t matter whether these men and women are serving their Country on the front lines of Fallujah or on a remote base in South Korea . The fact remains, they are serving their Country by choice.
They have left their families and the comfort and security of their homes to serve their Country in the capacity of the United States Military. Click on the links below to learn more about some of our honored military:

God Bless Our Troops
It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the soldier, not the organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.
It is the soldier, who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag, which allows the protestor to burn the flag.
– Dennis Edward O’Brian, USMC (often incorrectly attributed to Charles M. Province)
Christmas at Arlington Cemetary
Rest easy, sleep well my brothers.
Know the line has held, your job is done.
Rest easy, sleep well.
Others have taken up where you fell, the line has held.
Peace, peace, and farewell…
Readers may be interested to know that these wreaths — some 5,000 — are donated by the Worcester Wreath Co. of Harrington,Maine. The owner, Merrill Worcester, not only provides the wreaths, but covers the trucking expense as well. He’s done this since 1992. A wonderful guy. Also, most years, groups of Maine school kids combine an educational trip to DC with this event to help out. Making this even more remarkable is the fact that Harrington is in one the poorest parts of the state.
