So my son is graduating Marine boot camp on November 8th in San Diego,CA and I am asking my friends on facebook to help me be able to go see him. I don't want him to stand alone. I am on social security disability and have very small funds. I was wondering if any of you could give a little heart and help me with the expenses. It will cost about $425 to go. I would really appreciate the help and I can send you a receipt so it would be tax deductible. Here is my address 104 S prairieland ct, Rochelle, Il 61068.You may also pay with paypal. Any amount would help $5 and up. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me and at least listening. All extra money will be donated to the Marine corps graduation fund.

The men and women who choose to serve our country as a United States Marine endure more in one day of boot camp than most of us will ever experience in a lifetime and they do this every day for 13 weeks so that you and I can sleep at night knowing they are there to protect us.

None of these men and women should ever have to be alone on the day they can proudly say, "I am a United States Marine". Sadly though, there are many Marines without their families when this day finally comes. Not every family can afford the trip to Parris Island, SC, or San Diego, CA, to share this day with their new Marine, and that is just not acceptable.

The Marine Graduation Foundation became a recognized non-profit organization in May 2005 with the help of people like yourself who chose to make a difference. We are now seeking funds to ensure that NO NEW MARINE is standing alone without the support of his or her family on Family Day and Graduation. No donation is too small and with your help, we can make Family Day, as well as the Graduation, a proud, memorable day for a man or woman who has chosen to serve our country as a United States Marine. Thank you in advance for your kindness.
