This poignant video was sent to me by a friend. It is not new, nor is it new to this blog. But the message is timeless. As we approach Veterans Day and the Marine Corps birthday, allow yourself the time to watch it and contemplate the sacrifices so many people have made to make this country so great. Troops and their families share sadness, anxiety, and sometimes bottomless grief when loved ones deploy to far off lands. Yet they continue to lace up their boots and go because they believe it is their duty to do so. God bless them all.
