Marines, Afghanistan and the 4th of July.


Lets take a look at how the 2nd Marine Expeditionary Brigade, 1st Battalion 5th Marines, spent their 4th of July in Afghanistan today. Check out the story here. I'm not sure about you folks out there but I can speak for myself... I definitely did not spend today carrying 50-100 lbs on my back, for the third day in a row, in 100+ temperatures! Makes me thankful and grateful for my freedoms, and whole-heartedly appreciative for those who unselfishly give themselves to securing our way of life.

Now I'm off to bed... so what it's early? I'm friggin' exhausted!
