Here's a story, told in a crisp military fashion, about the importance of doing your life right, all the way to the end.
It is a story of two Grunts, US Marines, who gave their lives for their country and particularly, in this case, for their fellow Marines.
Read it. Then read it again, because you will have choked up when you first read it, and every word of the General's narrative is important to read and retain.
May YOUR and MY lives be so well spent as were those of these two lads.
The story was relayed to me by a combat-proven Marine, who wore his Combat Infantryman's Badge proudly into the US Air Force where he finished his military career...
