Marine Moms Are Special
From Mike, of Richmond, KY
This is a great site! Marine Moms have got to be very special; God knows that their children now serving are. I wish I could send a note to every single Mom that has a child in this war. Nothing elaborate...just a simple thanks. As a veteran of the U.S. Army Infantry officer's corps and now a father myself, I know that these mom's are fighting a very tough inner war of their own, and in its own way it is just as tough as the war their children now wage."

The Stand

A Marine wrote this while serving on ship in the Gulf:

A Personal Plea
This is an e-mail that my 22 year old nephew wrote, which I thought should be shared with many people in light of all the antiwar protesting. It tells it like it is.
Contributed by Kathy, Marine Mom to Brandon of Olathe, KS

A favorite hymn: God's Encircling Arms
Everlasting arms of Love
Are beneath, around, above;
God it is who bears us on
His the arms we lean upon.

He our ever-present guide
Faithful is, what-e'er betide;
Gladly, then, we journey on
With His arms to lean upon.

From earth's fears and vain alarms
Safe in His encircling arms,
He will keep us all the way,
God, our refuge, strength and stay.

The Lady Tells it Like it Is
Speech by Beth Chapman
The Shelby County Alabama Legislative Delegation hosted a "Stand Up for America Rally." More than 1,200 people attended including featured speakers Chief Justice Roy Moore, Adjutant General Mark Bowen and Alabama State Auditor Beth Chapman.
