Thanks Possum.

This is a reminder of the true cost of freedom. It brought a tear to an old leatherneck. DW thought it must have been uncomfortable for the Marine standing watch. I tried to explain what an honor it would be to stand watch. It is hard for anyone who is not a Marine or veteran to understand the honor in watching over a fallen soldier and offer support to a grieving widow.

Thanks for this reminder.
