    Thank You, Corporal Buckles. Now, Rest in Peace. We OWE you that much.

    My Grandfather was at my Marine Corps Boot Camp Graduation. Told me I was the Black Sheep of both families. He said it was about time someone became a Marine. He served in WWI, and tried to again with WWII, but was too old. He passed away in 1984.

    Within the next 40 years, if I/we live that long. We'll see the passing of great warriors of 2 World Wars. I thank them almost everyday, for their courage, sacrifice, and patriotism.

    At ease, soldier. Let's remember that a day will come when every war's last veteran will die, and let's resolve to honor them long before that.
