Sam’s Retirement from the Marines
August 11, 2012
Today was Sam’s retirement ceremony from the Marines. He is officially retired on the 31st of August 2012. There were two Marine colonels a first sergeant and a whole Marine honor guard present for this occasion. We didn’t know there was going to be so many Marines supporting Sam today, but when you think about it, the Marines have always been there for him. When I walked around the corner of the building and saw all the flags and honor guard, I actually got all choked up. Many wonderful words were spoken about Sam’s sacrifice to his country and Erin’s dedication to her husband. Please enjoy the pictures…I think they speak for themselves.
The few eloquent words above and the featured photos at the link are shared by the loving family of Sgt. Nichols:
