    Salute to troops

    Strong and determined daughter

    My daughter Corie Draughn joined the Marines almost 2 years ago after her brother Larry Draughn was severely injured in Afghanistan 4 years ago, his determination to get back up after loosing both of his legs after an IED explosion inspired her to join the Marines also. She is currently stationed in Japan, It has been a year since she has seen her family, she is so missed and loved. So we just want to salute her determination and strength that has taken her on this great journey.
