There is Nothing Like a Marine...

...or a Sailor, Airman, Soldier or Guardsman. For all our Military who stand on the line to keep us safe, I offer these thoughts and thanks today, after we have witnessed the blasphemies from DHS, Congress, Main Scream Media, most particularly Messrs. Immelt and Zucker, representing General Electric, CNN, NBC, the White House and, the ever present Dose of Pelosi, characterizing our patriotic rallies as 'astroturf' and our veterans as "violent, lunatic fringe, right wing extremist, domestic terrorists" even as they risk their own lives for us and for their country, over and over, deployment after deployment. To those whose ignorance and insensitivity will be their legacy, I say 'Shame On YOU!' and to those they have insulted, I say "Care not, for they are not worthy of wiping the sand from your boots." 99.99% of Americans appreciate, with awe and gratitude, the sacrifices our Military makes. It is best expressed, however, in these words, written by LCPL Chris Rogusky Lima Co. 3/25 USMC
There is nothing like a Marine.
His emotions are impenatrable, yet his shoulders are soft for those that need someone to lean on.
His hands are firm yet know exactly where they need to be.
If he has his arms wrapped around you, you're either in the last moments of your life or
The safest place you could ever be.
He's stubborn but will let you have your way just to see you smile.
He's deadly with a rifle and gentle with a child.
He plays poker with the devil but guards the gates of heaven.
He curses like no other but is a perfect gentleman.
He has a thousand yard stare, but when you look into his eyes it's the most comforting thing you've ever felt.
The Marine Corps trained him as a weapon but raised him as a lover.
He knows Every part of an M-16 as well as he knows every curve of his woman.
There is no other man like him.
Whether you love him or hate him both is a privilege.
He could be your worst nightmare or your sweetest dream.
He is a United States Marine.

And THAT'S The Dame Truth. Be Well, Stay Safe, and may God bless you all. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
