LAUREL, MS. (WDAM) - A Laurel mom received a special present from her Marine Corp son mothers day.

Gunnery Sergeant Lee Crisp traveled with his wife from Camp Pendleton in Southern California to spend time with his mother Shirley and family prior to un upcoming overseas deployment.

Crisp and his unit will be deployed to the Mediterranean in the coming weeks.  This will be the eighth overseas deployment in his 17 year military career. 

In 2005 Crisp was awarded a purple heart after being wounded in combat.

Crisp says it's special for him to be able to spend mothers day with his mother and family before leaving on his deployment.  Mrs. Crisp said it's truly a blessing.
