MURPHY NC - MY MARINE SON COMES HOME FROM 10 MONTH HISTORIC DEPLOYMENT

By

On Sunday February 5th I arrived at Camp LeJuene NC to watch my son embark from a bus full of returning Marines...

You see my son was deployed on March 23, 2011 on the USS Mesa Verde and he was part of an historic 10 1/2 month deployment.

Emotions were high and Marines for the first time got to see their newborn sons and daughters...

I meet my Facebook Marine mom Luann after months of e-mails, Skype sessions and Facebook. Luann son Tyler and my son became the best of friends while aboard ship. I felt like I knew her for years...we supported each other while our sons were away. A friendship I will always treasurer... 

It was quite an experience...one I will never forget!!!!!!

Thank you to all of our men and women who serve in our Military for your sacrifice and dedication....OOOOOH RAHHHHHH

      

 Murphy NC is just minutes from trout streams, hiking trails, kayaking or white water rafting through the Nantahala Gorge and Ocoee. You can browse in one of many antique and craft shops or just enjoy the sunset on your own deck in peaceful solitude. You CAN have it all!!!!!

Only 2 hours from Atlanta, Chattanooga and Asheville, Murphy, NC feels like it's from a different time and place. A time when life moved at a slower pace and people savored the simple pleasures...

That is very sweet. One of my employees has a loved one in the Marines and she's all about making care packages for his troop. Those are precious moments and I am glad you shared them with your AR family
