Take the time honor those who gave of themselves for our country.
I found this photo on the Facebook page of my childhood friend, high school teammate and American Marine Veteran Jesse Duarte. Jesse joined the Marine Corps upon graduation in 1983 and on saw duty in such places as Beirut, Lebanon. He was part of the contingent that faced daily shelling at the airport, soon after the bombing of the barracks that killed 200 + marines.
In posting the photo above of the unidentified hero, lets take a break away this weekend from the world of politics and honor those who serve to protect our rights to engage in dialog within a free country. Thank you Jessie and all veterans for your service and and sacrifice.
