Marine Corps Birthday News

Some of you long time readers here and of my columns in The Wanderer might recall that over the years from time to time I have mentioned a wonderful couple, an active duty Marine Corps officer, M, and his wife, C, who now have several children.  I had the honor of baptizing one of them.

Since I regularly ask for good news from you readers, here is some good news from The Missus, C.

It looks like we will have baby Gianna on November 10th……the Birthday of the Marine Corps!  Would you expect anything less from this Marine Family?  They usually do scheduled c-sections on Wednesdays, but M asked the Doc to push it a day so it will be on the 10th, and it looks like it will happen!   Oh the things I do for my marine!

    My wife and I are former Marines as is our oldest daughter. We, also, have one son who is a career Marine with over 20 year active duty. He is currently a CWO4 stationed in North Carolina.

    Congratulations Mrs. C. what a great gift to our beloved Corps.

    God bless all their family. My husband used to joke that our babies came with orders to new duty stations!

    Congratulations to M&C.
    The camo jammies are hilarious– I especially like the little devil dogs on the feet!

    ‘A Devil Pup’? Oh, that’s hilarious!
    Congratulations to M&C-I hope that baby Gianna ‘obeys orders’ and arrives on November 10!
    Oorah, indeed! And this is from the daughter of a Navy man!
