...but I think you will do better to hear it from a Marine instead.  Please do me the honor of visiting the blog Castra Praetoria to read a tribute to Corporal Joe Wrightsman, USMC, who gave up his life on 18 July.

He who willingly and unreservedly dives into danger with no thought of himself is my hero.
