In remembrance of those who gave their all

Stumbled across this by blessed accident. The body of USMC corporal – and member of the Lakota tribe – Brett Lundstrom, who was killed in Iraq in 2006, is returned home for burial. The photo of the body, with the eagle feather, really got to me. Hauntingly beautiful.

There walked a warrior.

Inter-service rivalry within the military is a fertile source of humor. Here is a good explanation of the differences between the branches...

One reason the Services have trouble operating jointly is that they don't speak the same language.

For example, if you told Navy personnel to "secure a building," they would turn off the lights and lock the doors.

Army personnel would occupy the building so no one could enter.

Marines would assault the building, capture it, and defend it with suppressive fire and close combat.

The Air Force, on the other hand, would take out a three-year lease with an option to buy.
