Dittos! For those of you that gave of yourselves, my thanks.
While there are those on this and other sites that will try and politicize actions that you might have been in, you did your duty, you conducted yourself with honor to the best of your ability, and you also accomplished the greatest mission of all, coming back alive.
I had the pleasure of having a center manager that was one of the best of the best. And so much so that he appeared on Marine Corps commercials as a sabre swinging machine. A more just, honest, and all around nice guy you could never hope to meet. Shame that the inner man had to rely on such a broken physical body.
