SEMPER FI

I AM SENDING IN PICTURES OF MY SON, MARINE SGT. CRAIG T. WELLS, FOR YOUR COLLECTION. MY SECOND HUSBAND AND I (WHO HAS A BUSINESS HERE)  HAVE 4 CHILDREN BETWEEN US AND CRAIG IS THE YOUNGEST. HE JUST TURNED 22 AT CHRISTMAS AND BEFORE HE COULD GET HOME, HE WAS DEPLOYED TO KUWAIT FROM CAMP LEJUENE, NC. I HAD NOT SEEN HIM SINCE AUGUST, I TALKED TO HIM 2 DAYS, 3 TIMES IN A ROW BEFORE HE LEFT AND HE SAID, NOT TO WORRY, HE WAS JUST DOING WHAT HE WAS TRAINED TO DO. HE HAS BECOME ONE SQUARED-AWAY MARINE, AND WE ARE ALL SO PROUD. HE HAS BEEN IN THE SERVICE 2-1/2 YEARS, IS A SHARPSHOOTER, IN THE COLOR GUARD, AND JUST RECEIVED HIS 4TH PROMOTION, IN FACT, I AM SENDING THOSE PICTURES ALONG, ALSO. THEY ARE OF HIS SERGEANT PROMOTION IN KUWAIT LAST MONTH. WE ARE ALL SO VERY PROUD. HE IS WITH THE 2ND MARINE MEDICAL BATTALION, SUPPORT & SUPPLY SERVICES. THEY ASSIST AND HANDLE ALL THE MEDICAL SUPPLIES FOR THE NAVY CORPSMEN AND LATELY HAVE BEEN TRAINED TO TAKE OVER CERTAIN MEDICAL PROCEDURES IF IT BECOMES NECESSARY.

CRAIG'S GRANDFATHER (MASTER SARGENT WELLS) WAS RETIRED AIR FORCE FROM BARKSDALE AIR FORCE BASE, HIS FATHER, DAN WELLS  (FROM  BOSSIER CITY)  SERVED TIME IN THE NAVY ON THE USS NIMITZ, AND HIS STEPFATHER, WILLIAM BOUNDS (FROM JACKSON, MS) SERVED IN THE NAVY ON THE USS SHENANDOAH.

MY HEART GOES OUT TO ALL THE OTHER MOTHERS, AND OUR SPECIAL PRAYERS TO THOSE WHO HAVE LOST LOVED ONES IN THIS DESPERATE TIME. WE ARE ALL SO PROUD OF THESE BRAVE YOUNG MEN AND HOPE GOD WILL KEEP THEM SAFE. I AM STILL SAVING CRAIG'S CHRISTMAS & BIRTHDAY PRESENTS FOR HIM; WHAT A PARTY THAT WILL BE. I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THAT SWEET FACE.

I ALSO HAVE 2 NEPHEWS, (BROTHERS) DAVID & DANNY PAYNE JR (FROM SHREVEPORT, LA), & 2 2ND COUSINS, JONATHAN TIDWELL & JEAN MALONE (FROM ARKANSAS) SERVING IN KUWAIT. KEEP THEM ALL IN YOUR PRAYERS.

THANK YOU
