Graduation Day - 7/1/11

The day is finally here.  My son officially joins the brotherhood of the United States Marine Corps.  As I watched him march across the same Parade Deck that I did 21 years ago, there are no words to describe the feeling.  I am so proud of him and what he has done.  In addition to my son graduating a fellow platoon member Lonnie Baker earned the title as well.  Lonnie has felt like a son to me.  I have coached him in football since he was about 6 or 7.  I could type for hours on how much this day has meant to me.  However, I will wrap it with the only words that I know that are truly fitting, Semper Fidelis.  These are the pictures of the day.
