MSG. (RET) Grubb,
It has been a few months since I have had to write to a Marine Family. I do believe that USMC is mostly not engaged in Afghanistan anymore, I hope.
Last week my family went to the USMC Intel. School in Dam Neck VA. for the graduation of the latest class. That is also where they have named the classroom after Brent and they have the Capt. Brent Morel award. That award is given to a graduate to honor Brent. The thing about this award is that it is voted on by the class members to honor one of ...view middle of the document...
Two LTs. who were mustangs said that they first heard about Brent during boot camp. One was east coast, the other was west coast. They both heard about him during TBS and officers school and then again during the intelligence school.
It was an honor for us to see these bright young men. My daughter and Brent’s wife came with us. They along with several of the guys traded shots at the bar that night. The girls I will add kept up with them until Molly and I told the girls it was time to go. I don’t think anyone was feeling any pain as laughter was filling the bar area.
Well I tell you this to get to this point. I want to THANK YOU and the staff for cooperating with me over the years in getting my letters to the families. We heard from a family we had written a letter from 4 years ago, two days ago, they needed to talk. It has been my HONOR to work with and in some small way to be associated with you guys and fine Marine and staff. I have been writing letters to Army families for about 8 years now. I am sending a batch of 31 now.
I really hope I never have to send another letter to a marine family or any other service for that matter. I really just wanted to say THANKS and it has been my honor to work with you and the staff.
