Take time to learn more about an active Marine, heading out for his third round in Iraq.
This particular member of the U.S. Marine Corps was a friendly, intelligent, interesting guy who was willing to educate even a relative liberal like me. Listening to others offers a fresh perspective. Hearing real stories without the "hurrah" and hype was educational and refreshing.
You bet. These are, again, tough times for the folks who volunteer for our Armed Forces. Whether or not you agree with the politics surrounding ANY given action, it doesn't hurt to hear the front-line soldiers' points of view.
