Jacksonville NC - Could you open your home to a young stranded Marine today?


Recommended Posts

There are three young Marines (under the age of 21) that are currently stranded in the Jacksonville, NC airport. They were trying to get home to their families before they ship out to Afghanistan but their flight was canceled due to weather. No one would give up their seat on another flight to help them home...so now they are stranded.

 

I don't know what their plans are right this second. I don't know if they are still trying to get home, going back to base, or what. We've offered to try to find families for them to join. My husband went to school with the mother of one of them, and both he and I are FB friends with her. If anyone can, and is willing, to pick them up and have them join them for Thanksgiving today, let me know and I'll pass on the invitation.

 

Again, I don't know what they want to do just yet but would like to help find them options.

That's horrible that no one was willing to take a later flight in order to help those poor young men get home! What a really sad commentary of the state of America :thumbdown:

 

As much as I would want to see family at Thanksgiving, I know they would be willing to postpone the meal so that we could give our seats to the Marines. Our minor inconvenience pales next to the sacrifices that servicemen & women make every single day.

 

Praying that the Marines are able to find a way home for Thanksgiving!:patriot:

I agree, I would have given up my seat in a minute. I can always fly to see family, those in the service cannot.
