On February 23rd, 1945, 5 Marines and 1 Navy Corpsman raised the American flag. They were doing what they were ordered to, but their deed has become the most memorable images not only of WWII but also of the USMC. Remember not only those who have fought, but those who continue to fight today. God bless our troops.
My son the Marine is having a hard time of his own tonight. I hope he’ll be strong. We’re so proud of him.
But please God, don’t ever let me have to accept a folded flag for my son the Marine.
The beautiful face of courage: Lance Cpl. William Kyle Carpenter USMC
Carpenter, 21, of Gilbert lost the eye, most of his teeth and use of his right arm from a grenade blast Nov. 21 near Marjah, Helmand Province, Afghanistan.
Friends and family say he threw himself in front of the grenade to protect his best friend in Afghanistan, Cpl. Nick Eufrazio
My heart goes out to him and his true bravery. Much respect for this man.
So much love & respect for this man from the bottom of my heart.
I don’t care what side of the fence you’re on about this war. But you need to respect this man for what he did.
God bless our Marines. Sacrificial courage embodied.
Ouch! What a nasty fall! Good thing some US Marines were nearby to help him out.
Gotta love our Marines… :D
For Nikki - on a car parked by us in the Target parking lot.
ROFLOL!! There are 2 Marine bumper stickers I want:
“Artillery brings dignity to what is otherwise just a brawl”
“I may look harmless but I raised a MARINE”
