The youngest was 19, the oldest only 26. Seven lifetimes worth of tomorrows given in service to country and Corps.

With the mortar explosion earlier this week, the Marine shot by police in Maryville Thursday morning, and the murder-suicide at Quantico Thursday night(story at link), this has been a terrible week for the Marine Corps. My condolences to all who are hurting.
