When you’re steely eyed warriors go into harm’s way they are trained and given everything they need to succeed. Sometimes Marines find themselves in harm’s way and other times, more often than not they find themselves in Hells way. Those that go forward on the pointy end of the spear know the risks. They know the sacrifices that may wait them yet they go anyway.

 We may have a good idea what our Marines do for us but what do you tell those left behind when a warrior is lost? How can you put into words what some warriors have done? Many have done awesome things. Things many would say they rate an award. However, the awesome things they did are what we expect from Marines and often they don’t get the recognition they deserve.

Your Marines and service members are our Nations heroes, hell your Marines are Super Heroes in my book but I’m a bit partial.

No words can describe to those left to deal with the void created when a warrior is lost. No actions can sooth those that understand the loss and make it easier. This is yet another reason why it is so important for America to realize how special their warriors are so when one of these lil tykes grows up and asks someone what it meant for their daddy to be a Marine, they will be told about their hero accurately.

Meet Landon…
his dad Marine LCPL Carpenter made the ultimate sacrifice
while serving with 3/8 in Afghanistan earlier this year…
a month before his son was born. (Thx Shannon L)

Some gave all…


Time for a Cgar


  1. Courage, love, sacrifice, past, present, future – how many words are conveyed in the simplicity of that photo. May God Bleas our military families everywhere.

  2. That is one of the saddest, most poignant photo’s I’ve seen. There’s no way we can ever thank our warriors enough. May God bless this little guy and his family and all those that serve/have served our country.

  3. God’s speed, baby boy, all those children that have walked the path you will have to walk, without your daddy, know you have a long trail in front of you.

  4. I have a two year old son and I thought about this scenario a lot. He was born two days before I deployed, and I thank every day I get to see him.

  5. So are we as a people and a country going to stand up and take care of the family of this marine who so unselfishly took care of us? What about the others?

  6. One of my sons, a Marine,did 2 tours in Afgan. He was in the Helmand province when Carpenter was killed. It could have been my boy. We also lost his best friend, Sr. Airman Dan Johnson, in Oct.2010 in Afgan. We called him our 4th son because he spent so much time with us and called my wife Mom sometimes. My heart hurts for you, and the precious gift he left for you. There is nothing else I can say to help.

  7. That only downside to the following option is that then you don’t get to withdraw any of your profits at all but on the internet play is absolutely unfastened. Which the Grail Maiden game is really unique from most diverse online slots in typically the fact that there become no pay lines. ipad cases speck iphone 5 case Leather Iphone Cases ipad 2 covers and cases ipad mini Cases best case for iphone 5 ipad smart cover cool iphone 5 cases;, Iphone 5 Accessories custom iphone cases iphone 4s Accessories Best Iphone 5 Cases samsung s3 case new ipad cases best iphone 4 cases ipad smart cover iphone 5 case cool iphone case ipad 3 cover leather ipad 3 case Cases For Iphone 5 best case for iphone 4s michael kors iphone case iphone 4 leather Case, Grizzlygadgets.Com, cool iphone accessories iphone 4 aluminum case galaxy s3 charging case ipad case with keyboard samsung s3 accessories best Iphone case iphone cases ( best iphone 4 case aluminum iphone case cheap iphone 4 cases best iphone 5 cases leather iphone case samsung galaxy s3 cases ( Cases For Ipad 3 stylus for Ipad 3 galaxy s2 covers stylus for ipad 3 best ipad keyboard case ( best iphone 4s case iphone 4s case ipad mini accessories iphone 4s leather case [] ipad 3 cover,, cases for ipad 3 ipad keyboard Case best iphone 4s case lifeproof iphone 5 Case ipad mini cover samsung galaxy s3 phone cases ipad cases best best ipad cover – – best iphone 5 accessories iphone 5 accessories ipad 3 cases ( best case for iphone 5 ipad 3 keyboard Mini ipad covers;, targus ipad 3 case ipad keyboard iphone cases 4 ipad charger Ipad 2 Cases ( Best ipad case ipad 2 accessories ipad charger best iphone 4 cases ( ipad 2 cases ipad 2 accessories iphone 5 case ipad keyboard ( Ipad cases best iphone 5 accessories ( iphone 5 leather cases ipad Mini covers iphone leather case ( custom galaxy s3 case ipad mini smart cover leather ipad 3 case Aluminum Iphone 5 Case Phone cases for samsung galaxy s2 ipad mini case best ipad 4 cases –, Samsung galaxy s3 case ipad cases Iphone 5 Cases ipad 3 cases ( stylus for ipad 3 iphone 5 accessories samsung galaxy s3 cases phone cases for samsung galaxy s3 iphone 5 charger ipad 3 covers – – cases for galaxy s2 ( iphone 5 case best iphone 4 case Leather ipad 3 case iphone 5 accessories cool iphone 5 cases samsung s3 cases;, best ipad cases best keyboard for ipad Leather Iphone Cases Ipad 4 case
