This is a moving story about two young brave marines died for the their honour and the safe of others. After reading the story my heart is wrenching but full of admirations for the two courageous marines. Maybe some people would think they were so stupid when not running to save their own lives instead of dying like that. But I don't think so. Their noble sarifice for others' safety is something making heroes differnent from cowards. God bless these guys. Rest in peace!

PS: How many of you being put into that situation think that you can do the same as the two courageous soldiers? I am not sure If I can. coffeetime.gif

Thanks for posting that.

Training? Yes, that and more. "Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends."

Yes. It is an nobel act that no traning can make. It stems from their selfless heart. The two young men exchange their own life for more than 100 others' survival. Very moving.

War is warped and twisted and evil and diabolic...

If tptb,the sabre rattling war mongering royal bloodline elites,didnt turn people into soldiers and train them to destroy and kill and pay them for doing so,those marines would never have been there in harms way...

So in reality,like it or not,the american government is why they're dead...

Just like my drafted uncle,who was forced thousands of miles away from his home and family to murder demonized people,never returned and his lifeless corpse still rots away somewhere within the jungles of vietnam...

This doesn't apply to soldiers alone, or friends. It's just are you selfless enough to die for someone you love?

I think it applies to anyone who would make the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of others ~ loved ones, or not.

True, it could be expected in combat ~ but they wouldn't have been reprimanded had they did what the others did.

In many instances in life there is no time to "think" or rationalize ~ one just must ACT. Those who have survived such instances usually 'brush it off' by saying it was the right thing to do. I'm sure that kind of courage comes from a love and faith from within, where there is no question or fear of doing the "right thing."

Are we born with it or do we acquire it? I dunno, but it is a bright spot for humankind that some do possess this quality.

Well, loved ones as in love thy neighbor as thyself ultimately.

I think we're probably born with that instinct, but taught other things. We however all have equal opportunity to get back to that knowledge. At least that's what I like to think.

Well...I respect the personal bravery,
but they could have stayed home.

Iraq for the Iraqis.
