Semper Fi Marine and welcome home! Thank YOU for your service to our Country and keeping us free! We are glad we were able to be a part of your "family" in welcoming you home!

Danks too much guys,

Just when I thought our Welcome You Homes couldn't get any better, you push the envelope to include Bikini Girls. Now everyone will ask for the Bikini Girls for our summer escorts. What's next in your bag of tricks?

When I asked Richard what he thought of his Welcome Home ( he is never long on speeches), he said: "It was crazy" with a big smile on his face.

He told me a car slowed down to watch our escort, and the car behind him, who also was looking at us, bumped into that car in front. They were okay.

Our friends and neighbors told us our escort convoy was beautiful, impressive, cool, etc. One neighbor asked me: "Do you do the same thing for all our troops?"

I was happily stunned at our large turnout for this busy holiday weekend. It means a lot to me that all of you sacrificed your holiday time to be with us.

I tell you that the happiest people at Richard's Welcome You Home, were the souls of our Fallen Heroes and my late Army Dad. Your actions make them proud of what they sacrificed for us. My late Army Dad thanks you all for doing this for his Marine grandson.

Please thank again all of our WYH & WWR members on our behalf.

Dan & Pilar

Proud Marine Parents

God bless you for all you've done for us.


Thank you for your service. God Bless You.



We honor your strength and courage. We also honor your service to our country. You will be in our thoughts and prayers daily.

God bless you and your family.
