Always Faithful. Excellent video by a US Marine in Bravo Battery of exercises in the Philippines. Our second son, James, is part of this artillery battery deployed for the past months in Philippines, Japan and South Korea. The casualty drill in the video brings home what the US Marines prepare to do for us. Take time to watch the video in fullscreen, it is worth pondering. Semper Fidelis! Carl
