if ur not in love with a marine u cant know adventure u dont know smelly PT uniforms that require a daily washing u cant understand green and brown camouflaged bags flooding your bedroom floor if ur not in love with a marine u cant understand the meaning of the phrase "going to the field" and the weeks you spend away from each other if ur not in love with a marine you can never imagine the hole in your heart when that phone call comes "honey im leaving tomorrow to go overseas i dont know how long i will be gone or exactly where im going but i want u to know that i love u always!" if ur not in love with a marine u dont know what its like to say that final good bye u dont know what it really means to be glued to the television u dont understand fear and u cant possibly understand the sleepless nights of endless crying wondering if u will ever see the love of ur life alive again if ur not in love with a marine u cant know the immense joy the uncontrollable smile or the butterflies in ur stomach when u see ur man march into the family waiting area upon redeployment u cant understand the self-control it takes to stand on the other side of the room as some higher-up gives a seemingly endless welcome home speech while all the marine stand in formation u dont know what its like to have that second first kiss or what its like to experience puppy love all over if ur not in love with a marine u cant truly understand how to make every moment count because u never know when that phone call may come again if ur not in love with a marine u can never really understand how very delicate life is!!!
i love my MARINE Sgt. A. LEAMBURGH♥
SEMPER FIDELIS ♥
