A Mother & A Very Young Son who is a Marine



Through all my excitement of CHA & wanting all the cool new stuff coming out, it hit me today that it is getting ever closer to the time my son deploys to Iraq. I completed this layout this year. It was a very proud moment indeed. My son had survived boot camp & became a Marine. He graduated in July of last year & I drove to SC to honor this mighty achievement. It was such a proud moment & one I will never forget. He has now been a Marine for a year & at 19 years old I still worry very much. I made this page using the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge & various other embellishments from my stash. I am sad this 19 year old of mine will be on his way to Iraq in a few weeks, but boy am I proud of the fine young man he has become. I love you Jon! And a special "Thank You" to all of our military members who serve or who have served our country. I know I am proud to be an American!

Love the pages! My hubby and I are both former soldiers, actually met in the Army and have been married 11 years now. I hope that your son returns home safe and sound and thank him for his service. And thank his momma for supporting him in this, too. I know that can be very difficult but it really means the world to our enlisted men and women to know their loved ones have their backs on the homefront.
