I found this tribute to our fallen Marines from Peggy Noonan’s latest column. Back on Veteran’s Day, our local paper, The Rocky Mountain News, published the story and photos a year in the making, of Marine officers who notify the families of the fallen, escort the fallen home, stand guard at the funerals, and support the families through it all. Time magazine picked up the photos and published them in a beautiful spread (Broken link, active December 23, 2005). The stories and photos drip with respect, and honor, for the fallen Marines, for their sacrifice, and for their families. Tissues will be needed. Thank you, Lord, that You have called such men as these to serve, guard, and protect us, that we may worship You in freedom according to conscience, homeschool our children in peace, and pursue our lives just as You have called us. May we not forget them this Christmas.
