To all Marines, past and present, Happy Birthday!
As many probably know, I served seven years in the United States Marines. It was an experience of a lifetime and a time I will always cherish and never forget. I learned discipline and I learned what strength in a team really means. I learned the importance of trust and I learned what it means to rely on someone else like a brother or a sister. I am still in contact with many of the Marines I met throughout those years and even though I am not in contact with them daily I would trust every one of them with my life.
I pray for all of the Marines out there fighting for our country.
I also want to give out a special recognition to my godson Brandon Zapata who was the best little Marine out there. We pray for you buddy and we miss you.
