For awhile, I kept an image of the US Marine Corps symbol in the back window of my car. Across from that, I had a picture of a US Marine handing an American flag to the mother of a fallen Marine. The caption read, “Marines Die. It’s What We Do.”
One day, my wife was coming out of Smiths grocery store, and saw an elderly man staring at my images in the back window of our car. She came home and told about the incident.
I mentioned that he was probably a Marine that was upset that he didn’t do his duty and die. A friend of mine responded that he was probably thinking about all his buddies that did do their duty.
This is rather belated Memorial Day tribute, in my own way.
