Personal Responsibility

My neighbor’s son, Luke, left for Marine boot camp today.  He just graduated from high school in May.  He signed on with the Marines in spite of my son, Luke, and I, trying to get him to join the Army.  I told him I might still talk to him even after he becomes a Marine.

I am very proud of Luke.  I am proud that he decided to join in spite of the fact that this country is at war with terrorism.  He volunteered to go through all the training that comes with becoming an American fighting man.  He volunteered to make the protection of our freedoms; our way of life; our Constitution and Bill of Rights his personal responsibility.  Let me say that again: He decided to make our freedoms as guaranteed by the Constitution and Bill of Rights his personal responsibility.  Yes, I am very proud of Luke.  He is one of the few to make this decision.  He joins a long line of men and women who have made the defense of our way of life their personal responsibility.

Luke makes the third young person to take the oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States from our cul-de-sac. I am proud of them all. Good luck young man. Embrace the suck!

Semper fi, Luke!
