I have a son (my only child) that has left for Marine Boot Camp and is scheduled to graduate on September 1, 2017. I am a single mother that desperately wants to attend his graduation. I've never missed one opportunity to see him accomplish anything but I've never had to travel out of state so far away. This would mean the world to both of us. The one thing my son does at any function is to see if I am there and where I am sitting. The donations that you provide will meet air travel and hotel. I would like to reach my goal soon, so I get the plane tickets at a decent price. Making this goal would mean he wouldn't have to look out and having no one to help him celebrate such a magnificent goal. My child has wanted to go into the military since he was 5 and serving his country has been his only goal. As you can imagine this was very hard for this Momma to comprehend. We've been a party of two for so long it's been really hard to just be a party of one. Gratefulness wouldn't even begin to say how I would feel to each and every one of you that could donate. Any amount would help. Thank you so much!!!
