My daughter Sam came to me one day and told me she wanted to become a Marine, WOW, I didn't see that coming. When your daughter decides to get married you usually have seen the boy around for a while and can sense when they are getting serious, No Motherly senses this time! Nope, right out of the blue. I have to admit I think she is perfect Marine material and I am very proud of her. Before she left she knew she would miss Mother's day so her and her sister (Alli) went and bought me this Marine scrapbook. I had already been trying to find one and those two sneaky girls found one for me..yea. Now, the Marines don't care if you need photos of your precious child for a scrapbook they just take your child and you get what you can. The first page of the scrapbook came with a title page, "I served in the United States Marines". I placed her platoon photo on it and it fits perfect (she is on the bottom row 4th from the left). When my daughter signed up they gave her some free stickers and a shirt, the shirt fits me so she gave it to me. A lot of people ask me where I got the shirt and I tell them "Give them your child and they will give you a shirt". I placed one sticker on the back side of the cover and the other sticker on my truck. On page done, four more years to go.
