I had to lower my head. Every time I talk with warriors that came before me and my 20 plus years in the Marines I am in awe of the heroism and bravery. The courage and toughness and the honor. Many times they tell me “We are so proud of you Marines of today” and all we are doing. That’s usually when I tell them we are simply trying to walk in their footsteps to make them proud. Marines of today are tough and dedicated but we always pay tribute to those that have gone before us. They have done the hardest tasks especially without today’s technology. They are so proud of us, when it’s us that are so proud of all the warriors regardless of branch that walked before us. Those are today’s heroes, not us. They are so proud of us and tell us how great we are, every time they say that I have to lower my head because it’s them that make us proud. Remember, there is nothing worse to deal with like a pissed off Marine.

I’ve added the video of Elvis (cause I’m a fan) and I guess it’s a good tribute for those that walked before us. Time for a C-gar!
