View Full Version : Doesn't Surprise me

Found this interesting factoid - but now that I think about it, I'm not surprised at all!

At the Vietnam War Memorial sits a flag pole and at its base are the seals of each U. S. military service. Every day throughout the entire year a group from Marine Barracks, 8TH & I, Washington, D. C. march to the flag and polish the Marine Corps emblem. The other services have NEVER touched theirs!

Thank you 8th & I.

And you can bet your sweet a$$ each and every Marine that visits that Memorial will kneel and wipe that Sacred Monument as needed.

I know. WE Did!

Thanks Ellie. I will never forget that day. God Bless You and the Kiddo's.
