I am grateful for the Marines. They helped mold some of the greatest men and women who will ever have had walked this Earth. One of my first heroes, my dad, is a proud Marine. And another one of my heroes, the man in the picture is one of my favorite people I have known...Brad. I am not even going to get into the amount of love and respect I have for them...but I know part of it is due to the training the received as a Marine.
Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem.
