Semper Semper Fi

We - my DAR buddies, that is - spent our usual Wednesday afternoon/evening cooking for the West Battalion Wounded Warriors. Let me say, if you are feeling you need a hug, cook for a bunch of Marines and there will be plenty. They certainly know how to show their gratitude.

I was looking for a new angle on photos. I mean, how many pics can you take of a bunch of ladies in red, white and blue aprons cooking? So I took a stroll through the parking lot.

Naturally, it was filled with a plethora of monster or just regular giant trucks that any self respecting Marine would be driving.

Some augmented with a macho motorcycle,

but it was the small details on the windows that belied the culture and warrior identity of the Marine.

Pray for our troops, Jesus. I could swear that's a take off of the St. James Cross in that design.

What a wonderful thing to do! When we stayed at the Hale Koa in Hawaii I saw quite a few wounded vets. Heart breaking. And I just wished I could *do* something. I love this!

KNH, Thanks for your appreciation. One think I learn from the Marines is appreciation. These guys are grateful for the least of things, and they show it.

I like how you picked up on the bumper stickers's messages.
