Grow a pair

Anybody could, in a time of tragedy, run away from what they are really feeling. It doesn't take much character to hide from whats actually going on and play childish Highschool games. It doesn't take any balls to hide behind a computer screen and spit out nasty words.

It does take one hell of a pair to act like an adult, when all you want to do scream and play games back. I may be a sad grieving widow, but I will tell you one thing, I'm as tough as nails. Correct me if I am wrong, but it takes a "tougher" person to walk away gracefully with my head held high.

Besides, I have something better on my side. My husband in heaven who is seeing all of this.


  1. Oh darlin' sounds like some people are up to their old tricks...which is absolutely not what you need right now. I know it means very little, but I'm on the other side of the country, pulling for you and supporting you and HOWEVER you choose to go forward from this point on. It's your life and the only person you have to answer to is you. Well, y'know..and God at the end of the day. But I am sure Chad is proud of you no matter what. Hold your head high and try not to knock out any innocent bystanders with your big, swingin' pair! ;-D xoxo

  2. You need to go on the offense and stop taking this from them. All it should take is a call to the chaplain and he'll make (with your permission) a phone call to the chain of command and they'll take care of the people doing this. We had a similar issue with someone who had an addition problem who any time she was on something would harass us, threaten us, our kids, she even went to the police to try to press charges for something that didn't happen and she ended up in a psych ward. We let the chaplain know what was going on, he called hubby's chain of command (who had already been told by hubby that something was going on) and gave them more specifics and they called her husband, told him what was going on and to make it stop immediately. I wish we had made the call a long time ago. Our lives have been so much easier since they dealt with this. Your husband gave everything for his country and for the Marine Corps and they are there to take care of you. As a Marine Corps Widow you deserve their respect and their assistance during this time. The last thing you need or deserve is more stress and more problems by Marine Corps Wives who have no respect for you and what you've been through and ARE going through. You shouldn't be going through this and you shouldn't put up with this kind of harassment. You need to make a call and let someone handle this for you. These wives should be supporting you and should be a support system for you. We're at Camp Lejeune and whenever there is a loss in our unit we all bond together and come together as a family to take care of the wife and any kids etc. You should be able to depend on the Marines that were in your husbands unit AND their wives.

  3. Hugs to you Katie!!!

    Agreeing 100% with the other two posters. Make the call and end this nonsense!!!

  4. I am sorry Katie that you have to endure whatever it is people are putting you through. You are indeed a strong woman and I am proud of you, from the outside looking in. Stand firm in your beliefs. Know that Chad is watching over you and is as proud of you as you are of him. I have been praying for you and will continue praying for strength in this upcoming memorial for Chad. I wish I could be there but am pretty sure my son will be attending. God Bless you.

  5. I can't believe in a million years people would think to mess with you! Like you said you are one tough cookie! You are probably one of the strongest people I know but dont know. If that makes any sense. Screw them all who think they need to act like they are 10 like really some people just never grow up. I would of have thought that in times like these people would come together to be there. Not act like they are 10. This angers me that you are having to deal with crap. I just want to slap them to reality and out of their own little world they think is so perfect. I hope karma come and gets them in the butt very soon!
    I am always thinking of you!

  6. I just echo what the other posters have said....I think it's rediculous that people are harrassing you BUT I know that you are one of the strongest, bravest girls out there and you've got this....if you need back up, let us know, me and 400 wakeups will carpool from central KY!
