    UUUUUURAAAAAAHHHH!!!
    Thanks.
    And my prayers go out to ALL our men in uniform.
    My son is an e-6 in the Navy at San Diego. He has been to Afganistan and Iraq and other places he cannot tell me. He is a Tomahawk missle instructor right now. Well...he doesn't TEACH the missles. Actually he teaches men how to fire them and all that high tech jazz. LOL
    Sempre Fidelis my brothers.

    "From the halls of Motezuma, to the shores of Tripoli..."
    I still get goose flesh when I hear it.
    It is a proud day for every Marine. May we, as a Nation, continue to uphold them in prayer, respect, favour and honor. Not everyone can cut it like the men of the USMC.

    Father in Heaven, LORD, please watch over them and their comrades in arms as they defend what is right for those who cannot or will not fight for themselves. For Jesus' sake, and in His Name I ask. Amen.

    I get goose bumps too -- and I get weepy . . . AND some of the proudest moments I have each year are the couple of times they play "From the halls of Montezuma" each year in church and my husband stands.
