Sitting in an airport waiting on his flight home, a young Marine in his dress blues, honor man of his platoon, just out of boot camp was catching up on some reading from his Marine Corps manual. He was caught up in all of the knowledge that he was taken in and drifted off into another world, the world of the Marines. He dreamed of all of the new places and people and the things that he was going to see during his tour of duty. All of a sudden he felt a couple of tugs on each side of his neck that brought him back to earth, he never saw the two little girls about 6 or 7 years old standing behind him, one of the little girls said to the other one, "see i told you so, it's just skin like everybody else".
