Very sad day for all Marines and Marine families, my son is a Marine training at Corry station, so this hits hard and close to home. Say a prayer tonight for the families and for all our servicemen and women.
Thanks for your service gentleman you are true American heros, you will not be forgotten...

A very sad day. People often think of troops serving overseas as being in danger and even pray for them. I think of them too, pray for them as well, but I always include those who serve at home. It's a dangerous occupation, no matter where they are.
