Letters To Dougie

Dougie Hardesty's family business was enrolling in the military. His father did it, his father before that did it, and so did his father. So it wasn't a surprise when he did. But what Dougie didn't know, was that his trainer, Kelly Rose, was one of the best. She was one of the only trainers who went one on one with each of her men. She was tougher than half the men that came through the MEU Ground Combat Element. She never let any man phase her. She never let any one man get into her head. Untilthe tragedy..until Dougie..


3. Parents Like Them


~3 months later~

I stood with my bags thrown over my shoulder and my uniform buttoned perfectly. My dad stood before me, holding back tears. My mom stood beside with a tissue in her hand just crying her eyes out. 

"Son, I have never been more proud of you, than in this moment. I thought I could be a man about this, but now I know I can't." My dad threw his arms around me sobbed into my shoulder. 

"Pa, it will be fine. I will be back soon don't make a scene, Pa"

He pulled away and breathed deeply in through his nose. His cheeks were streaked with tears. He patted my shoulder and nodded at me as he made his way over to a nearby window. My mom couldn't say much through her tears, I could only make out one phrase.

"I love you so much Dougie"

"I love you too Mom. I will be back soon. I promise." 

She smiled and dabbed her eyes with her soaked tissue. 

"You're gonna miss your flight honey. She got up on her tiptoes and kissed me on the cheek. "Stay safe."

"I know Mom. I will." 

I hugged her and made my way to my plane. I made my way to where I was supposed to board my plane and I turned to face my parents. They both had tears running down their cheeks as the waved and smiled proudly at me. I waved and made my way to the plane.  As I sat down in my seat, I wiped a single tear off m cheek. They always tell me how proud they are of me, but I never get to tell them how proud I am to have parents like them.
