    Farewell, Marine

    I'm not a Marine, but regardless of your branch of service, this video is almost too hard to watch.

    God bless the United States Marine Corps. Semper Fideles.

    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    That was very tough to get through, but very well done. Marine or not, everyone should take the time to watch and appreciate that piece.

    To ya'll Marines out there: Thanks for what you do.

    The pain and hurt is tangible. Beautifully made piece of work and more than worthy of viewing, however hard it is to watch.

    that was very well done and gives great respect to the fallen men and woman as well as the bond that we Marines have.

    Beautifully done. It's odd, but that site makes me want to punch Michael Moore in the face for some reason.

    Yeah, really well done but not fun to watch. Kind of like the Wall or any of several other monuments are to me as well. More of this needs to be out there in the public eye, never forget not just our Marines but the sacrifices of the other services as well.
