MTC Graduation Day

It is with mixed feelings that we spent the day at Camp Pendleton and at the San Diego airport with our Marine after his graduation from combat training. We are so proud of Joe's determination as he went through the past 5 months of training that pushed him to the limits of endurance and came out smiling.
He has shown himself to be of the same character as his Grandpa Sevey and Opa Bielefeldt as they both served in the military with honor and courage. 
Joe shared with us his fears, hopes and dreams just before we left him at the airport. We hugged and I cried later, wondering when we will next meet our son - our Marine.
We are proud parents of a proud marine!
