This has been an emotional week for many of us. The Marine Corps celebrated its 234th birthday on Tuesday, and the nation honored its active duty troops and veterans on Wednesday. The Fort Hood shooting shocked us all, and renewed not only our awareness of the dangers faced by the military every day, but also our determination to continue the fight against the evil, bitter enemies who lurk – here and in far off lands. As the week closes, I thought it would be appropriate to show this video. It was written to honor those who serve in far off lands so that we can sleep soundly in our beds here in the United States.
