While training with new Marines doing large volumes of high caliber training in the middle of the desert and producing superb results, I can only stand in disbelief that I actually get paid to do this.

This is one of the reasons that I am so proud to be with Marines like so many others continuing to defend this country present and past, during this Veterans day, thank a Vet & tell a Marine, happy birthday. Semper Fi Marines and Happy Birthday. One Team, One Fight.

  3. Final Role Call
    By Robert A. Frost
    His name was called and called again there was no answer.
    The flag-draped casket stood silently as it will forever.
    What man is this who died for his brothers?
    What man is this who died for his country?
    What man is this who died for others?
    Only tears could be heard above the chaplain’s prayer
    Only we who wonder stand and blankly stare.
    What man is this who died for his brothers?
    What man is this who died for his country?
    What man is this who died for others?
    No warrior ever fought to die for vanity or pride.
    No man strode into battle with only hope at is his side.
    What man is this who died for his brothers?
    What man is this who died for his country?
    What man is this who died for others?
    .
    His day is done, gone his sun.
    His place is now below the forest green.
    Say “good-bye” to our favorite son.
    Say “good-bye” to our man our Marine.
    He is his father’s son, his brother’s brother.
    It is your country and now you are free.
    “From the Halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli.
