My daughter married her high-school sweetheart last night. She never looked more beautiful. It was a great wedding.
May God bless their marraige and may they always be as happy and in love as they were last night.
Lance Corporal Andrew Bowser, USMC, recently returned home from Afghanistan. Andrew, age 24, graduated from Bishop Shanahan HS (Downingtown, PA) in 2005. In 2008, he joined the Marines and got married. He and his wife Holly never got to take a honeymoon. He spent 6 months in Afghanistan and got home on Memorial Day weekend (he was away for 9 months total). He finally got a chance to take his wife for a long overdue honeymoon. They have 2 kids (1-yr and 2-yrs old). They were greeted with a flag line at the airport and given a motorcycle escort to the Marine Corps League in Downingtown for a surprise welcome home party. His father is a Vietnam Veteran and his wife prayed the rosary for her Marine son everyday.
WELCOME HOME! THANK YOU AND HOLLY SO MUCH FOR YOUR SERVICE AND SACRIFICE!
Nick and I went to New York to see Yankee Stadium. The Yankees are very supportive of our military.
They are only team that lets active duty military into the games for free. We met an Air Force Officer with his son and an Army soldier, home from Afghanistan, was there with his daughter.
We had a visit from the USMC’s mascot. Her name is Sophie and her uncle served proudly in the Marines.
Another outstanding show of support for our troops. Audrey held the flag for us as we ended our rally by singing the National Anthem and saying a prayer for our troops protection and success.
Cute sisters Sidney and Sam came to support their Uncle Billy, an Army Apache Helicopter Pilot currently in Iraq. Scott came with his dad Ray, a 20-year Marine.
Just as Sophie stands guard and looks out for her family, our troops are sheepdogs, looking out for us, protecting the sheep and confronting the wolves. We are forever grateful to all our armed forces and we never take their sacrifices for granted.
Thank You Troops! Thank You Military Families! May God protect you and guide you to victory over evil.
Perfect spring day greeted patriotic citizens, military moms and dads, and veterans to come out and show open support for our troops.
Joan held the flag for us as we sang the Star Spangled Banner and said the Lords Prayer for our troops. Joan met us about a year ago as she and her husband were walking by. They were surprised and happy to see us holding signs and flags in support of our troops. They told me, “Our nephew Steven is in Afghanistan right now”. They come to our rallies when they can. She told us Steven is back from Afghanistan. We are extremely proud of his service and glad that Joan kept us up to date.
The highlight was a visit from an active duty Army sargeant named Scott. He is a veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan and he gave us some Army stuff. “I’d like to give you these” he said as he handed me a blue ballcap and gray t-shirt with 82nd Airborne insignia , “You can give them to someone in your group, I really appreciate what you guys are doing, this is amazing.” I took his picture as he posed with Albert, Marine Bob, and Vietnam Veteran Bud. Thanks Scott, you made our day and we appreciate all you do for us.
Our mascot Victor was at the rally. Afterwards we took a walk, he comes from a long line of military dogs. He loves our troops and always seems uplifted and inspired after our rally.
