  1. I hope in days to come the Pakistanis remember who is was that came to their rescue: The United States Marines, not their fellow Muslim countries.

  2. I’m betting that somewhere down the road of life more than one of those children will remember the run for that helicopter and the good hearted Marines that came to their rescue that day. They now have an exception to the often repeated lie in the Middle East that all Americans are evil. God Bless our Marines!
