I never realized the Iwo Jima memorial is really a memorial to all fallen Marines from the Revolutionary War forward.
I never realized how BIG this memorial was till I stood next to it tonight.
I never realized how many wars we fought till I saw the list circle the base of the memorial, and start over again on the next side.
And when someone-who-shall-remain nameless asked her dad "Didn't you used to be a Marine?" he replied "Once a Marine, always a Marine, kid."
Hua, Pop. And thanks.
