A Fourth Time

This headline caught my attention this morning:

Marine battalion heads to Iraq for fourth time. Tears flow as loved ones bid goodbye to unit members in Twentynine Palms.

The original article is available from SFGate online. I know they volunteered, and I know they all understood that the call to war was part of being a Marine. But who could have imagined this? A fourth tour in a combat zone? These young men are amazing. They don't know "quit." They only know "can do, will do." Oohrah, Marines.
