My Dad the MARINE
by Robert G Brown
Original Draft – 6/27/2015
Just so you know, my totally awesome Dad never spent a day in the MARINE Corp. or the US Military for that matter. It doesn’t take a warrior to be a Superman in my book. A MARINE is simply my definition of Superman, and I attribute it to my love and appreciation for the US Armed Forces for protecting my family, which includes me, and my planet. (Hi Momma Gaia!)
But back to Superman, my Dad, Robert L. Brown. You want to talk about hard work and effort; how about 35 years at the United Parcel Service, (That’s right, “What can Brown do for you?”) working overtime every week they would allow him, usually 60+ hours a week and then working on the weekends making extra money any honest way he could, or just working around the yard or remodeling or upgrading the our house?
He had dreams, but laid them aside for us, so we could be happy. Maybe that was his dream and I just didn’t realize. If that is not Superman, I don’t know what is. I love you dad! I hope you have a happy day.
P.S. We are the Family of God, and we represent the Eagle. The Eagle represents Freedom!
