Loving a Marine by Lostshychica23 Loving a Marine by Lostshychica23
So to disclaim for a moment. The poem is not mine! I found it a long time and I'm not sure who wrote it but it's a great piece. Anyway I used Illustrator to give the shape (which is of the Marines EGA) and wrote the text right into it. It came out great and was good practice for my computer graphics class that I was taking at the time. ^.^V

This is for me and all the Marine Wives out there!
P.S.- EGA = Eagle, Globe and Anchor (alittle trivia for you guys!)

Enjoy!

I love this. Hopefully I'll have someone to write to and come back to after I am sent off. But I doubt it =[

At least I will have my brothers!

Thank you! I hope you find that special girl that is strong enough to stay through thick n' thin. But if not don't ever let it get you down. The good ol' boys of the USMC will always have your back :D

They are the few and proud for a reason.
People call them jarheads, leathernecks, etc.
But I call them marines. But I call them HEROES more.

that would be awesome, but i claim no rights to the poem. I wish though it's a beautiful piece and I'm only glad I found it so that I could pass it on to others. :D

This says so much about how I feel. Yet, I can never put it into words like this poem has done. Thank you for posting it. And I will love my Marine with all of my heart and soul!!!! I miss him terribly right now and wish that he was home holding me in his arms :cries:
