They Were My Brothers

I received an email today about a medically retired young Marine running a 100 mile marathon down in the Keys over the weekend.
He ran it for the Marines who won't ever run again.
He ran it for the special ops guys from all branches who won't either.
His youtube is found here.
By the way, he finished the marathon in 31 hours, 03 minutes and 21 seconds. 0321 is the MOS for Recon.

On a VERY related note, the boys at Blackfive and many others have joined together in a new venture.
Introducing the Warrior Legacy Foundation.

Urrahh to all of you!!!

The Marines have always been on time and on schedule. The Navy made damned sure of it. :-)

Seriously, the simple actions of a one good man made with respect for his brothers (and sisters) will defeat entire armies of woe.

Marines. Is there anything they can't do?
