    Parris Island Anyone?

    Hey guys, I'm feeling pretty alone since it seems like a lot of people have their recruits leave for boot camp on Aug 26th to San Diego and it seems like I'm the only one who's recruit is in SC? Anybody have someone who left to the same destination on the same date?

    Being a Marine mom, girlfriend, fiance, or wife is the hardest job in the corps. We are the ones who get left behind to figure out how to live our lives without them. We have to learn how to be stronger than we have ever had to be. We have to mask the loneliness and sadness in...

    My Marine

    I married a Marine ,he was active duty for 24 years. I was by his side all the way. After 30 yrs of marriage he decided he no longer felt I needed him except for his money. He deployed several times over the 24 yrs. I became very independent. Life now is very lonely.
