Friday afternoon I attended a memorial service for the 6 Marines that were lost during combat operations in Afghanistan earlier this year. Here is the article.
It was my first (and hopefully my last) memorial service. Although my boyfriend is home in Hawaii with me, it reminds me how very real this is – what they do. I watched those 6 Marine’s friends and family cry. They kissed their Marine’s helmets, squeezed their dog tags, and rendered their final salutes.
Appreciate the ones you love…
Rest in peace.
