I Would Like To Thank Those Who Thanked Me!

My Marine Corps DaysI woke up this morning to a great surprise. I had 15 facebook messages, 6 emails, and even a few phone calls from friends and family thanking me for my service in the Marine Corps. I have honestly never felt so appreciated as I do today. For that I wanted to thank all of you who thanked me.

Looking back on my 14 years in the Marine Corps I can tell you it made me the man I am today. When I went in I was just like thousands of other young men who join the military, naive and wet behind the ears. I learned quite a few basic behaviors that still serve me well today. I learned discipline, hard work, self sacrifice, courage, and compassion just to name a few.

When people thank me for my service I always think to myself “thanks, but it was no big deal, I did what I wanted and needed to do”. But you know what, it is a big deal and I’m proud of the fact that I did it. I thank everyone who has served in the armed forced; past, present, and future. There is no higher calling and I have the utmost respect for the men and women who are still serving. Have a great Veteran’s Day everyone. I know I already have!

Nathan - I don't think there are enough ways to say "thank you" to you and all those who have served.  My husband, dad and grandfather served, and I'm so proud of them.

Nathan,

Originally from the small town of Chipley, it's been my observation that Florida provides the U.S. with a LOT of good Marines.

Semper Fi,

John

Nathan, 

Way to go!  You did what you wanted to do & needed to do and didn't consider it a big deal.  However, that said, we need more young folks with that mindset.  

Glad it was a fabulous Veteran's Day.  Wishing you many, many more wonderful ones.

All the best, Michelle

Hi NaTE,

lOTS of great comments. I will add my appreciation to you and all soldiers as well.

One thing about being a marine - the discipline, the erect posture, that little "edge" follows you all your life.

God bless you,

Phil
