    Except for 'ferg81mm', the rest of the viewers have been of the +50 crowd.

    We need more of the younger set to read this.

    Thanks Jim.

    so what exactly do you mean except for me, that websight is the active duty first blt eighth marines web sight, and it just shows that the active duty keeps that attack in mind everywhere they go. I joined the blt four years and three weeks after the attack, and when the blt was in kuwait, that attack played heavily on what that blt did after the cease fire.
    I was simply showing a related link

    Thanks for sharing that info. I've passed it on to many of my friends. I never actually knew all the details and will never forget it now. I was born only a year before that. I'm sure a lot of my generation don't know exactly how terrorism isn't just a 9/11 and after problem.

    Semper Fi and Thank you gentlemen and ladies for your service.

    Thanks for posting that. I lost my Father, a Marine Sgt, in that attack. It was my inspiration to join this beloved Corps.

    Hello Mike

    I am the sister of Cpl Jim Silvia and the sister in law to Stephen Spencer. I tried to look for an e mail for you, but you did not have one. My e mail is tljjri4@verizon.net. If you would like to get in contact, I would love to hear from anyone who knew Jim or Steve. Debbie Rhosto is Stephens sister and I am sure she will try to contact you too. Take Care.

    Lis

    I was simply showing a related link
    Chill out, it wasn't personal. Simply that the over 50 crowd was replying early on. Semper Fi.

    Thank you for bringing this to the light. I spoke to a group of young people a couple of days ago; they noticed the Marine Corps emblem on my car. One of them asked me if I was a Marine? I very proudly replied yes. The young man told me his brother was going to the Marines but his mother didn't want him to go. He said she didn't want him to die over there; he then asked me when was I over there. I told them I was not in either of the Gulf wars however, I served in the Beirut. It seem our history books have forgotten us. I am going to send our story to a couple of teachers.
