Hello and welcome shotlady,

Our oldest is in The Marines (15 years). He just left 29 for a new post at LaJeune. They give you a sense that, even if SHTF, there are strong capable people that will hold a line against tyranny. That probably sounds hokey to some people and they might even see Marines as part of an oppressive force controlled by The Government, but 99% of Marines understand what freedom means and as long as there is a Marine Corps, tyranny will not stand in this country.

God bless yours.

Welcome to the forum and thanks to your family for your service. That includes you, because you raised them to love their country and it is your prayers that keep them safe, and it is your sacrifice to have them far away to defend our shores.

Thank ya'll so much. my older son is a luetenant and in pilots program, my baby is 20 and is machine gunner he is in 29 palms but deploys in two weeks to f*ckedupistan. my heart breaks. I have explained to them that it may be unfortunate, but i may need to shoot at them and take them down, but was reassuring that it wouldnt be personal. they assure me theyd defect.

but also i told them its cool to know the plan and be able to defect with all the neat stuff from the gubmint. or i could hold them hostage for ammo...

living in the city it is unfortunate that i cannot total prep. my prepping contains 2 back packs of survival gear and being well able to use it. and would only have to hoof it about 25 miles before i am in nowhere and not in crisis and another 32miles from there to my destination for long term bug out.

it sucks as im not able to stock pile ammo or water or food and know itll be there 100%.

shotlady - I know where you're coming from. Our oldest has deployed multiple times out of '29. I'd like to say it gets easier on the second, third, fourth time, but it doesn't seem to. We just stock up on cases of the little things he needs and enjoys and get a stack of fixed rate boxes. Sending out a package every couple of weeks keeps you connected. Crystal Light has always been a favorite 'cause the water quality typically sucks. The rest is hope and prayer, then one day you're watching the plane land and their back home.

This site can be worthwhile: MarineParents.com: A Place to Connect & Share(tm) for Marine Parents Moms Dads Wives Family Members . PM me (us) if you ever feel the need. You probably already know… Marine Corps families are a larger family all their own. Their sons and daughters, husbands and wives have each other's back in the field and we have each other's back here at home.

God bless.
