Marines and soldiers in Helmand and Kandahar by photographer John Wendle

It's amazing how many people forget who actually make the greatest sacrifices during rough times. The poor and the young.  It has always baffled me that we expect the young to pick up arms and fight for our freedoms, but then want to take away their freedoms when they return home.... With the excuse that they're 'too immature/young' to know what they're doing.  Really??  You didn't care when they were your human shields.

Great quote about courage from Socrates. "He is a man of courage who does not run away, but remains at his post and fights against the enemy."
