I would like to convey my heartfelt thank you and gratitude for the
assistance in helping to complete the funding needed to attend Darik's
graduation. I could never have gone through life knowing I had missed such
an amazing and beautiful ceremony. It is truly something I will never
forget, along with never forgetting his face when the Sr DI's dismissed
their platoons for the last time, welcoming the new Marines and families
into the greatest brotherhood.
I know that thank you's can never be enough
for the help you provided. My heart is overfilled with the love I have for
the Marine Graduation Foundation for what you do to ensure that each Marine
has someone there for them in this momentous occasion. You all will forever
be a part of our lives and one day, once truly back on my feet, I will be
paying it forward to help another single mom attend her son's or daughter's
Marine Corps graduation.
My sincerest gratitude,
Dawn M Wise
M.o.M. of Pvt Darik Wise
Did you know many employers will match your donation? Be sure and check with your Human Resources Department. It's a great way to double the number of Marines who will not stand alone!
