Our Own Hero...

Anchors Aweigh...
You may have noticed on the left sidebar, I've added a badge with the name "Steven" on it. This is Steven, who left Tuesday for Virginia to attend Navy boot camp. He's my husband's oldest grandson and he couldn't be prouder of him. Granted, along with that pride goes some trepidation but we're trusting God to be with our boy and keep him safe.

This is proud papa, Steve, and step-mom Jill.
And come September, Sarge...we're sending off a new Marine!

Pride is something that will be there forever. I am proud for you and hubby, keep me up on his progress and I will post about him. We love all our sailors and solders. Another hero.

CONGRATS! We are praying for him and y'all as he begins this new phase in his life. We do appreciate his - and Y'ALL's! - service to our country!

That makes two young men that are serving our country. I too am proud. God bless and a big thank you from me. :)

Be sure he gets registered with eMailOurMilitary.org so we can support him properly! What a noble young man.

If you are feeling particularly charitable, stop by my blog and sponsor me tomorrow for Blogathon 2007. The charity I'm blogging for is Kiva.org.

Just know that I am praying for him in boot camp and for the entire family. I know exactly how y'all fell. God will be with him.

And you're send off a new Marine.. that's wonderful. I'll have letters from Matt by then, which I will be sharing, and can give him a heads up.
