Oo-RAH!

Last October I wrote a wee piece about The Warrior Song, a soul-stirring and magnificent bit of music about -- and for -- our guys and gals out on the pointy end of the spear by Mr. Sean Householder and some friends.

All purchases of the music, and goodly percentage of T-shirts and hats, go to the Armed Forces Relief Trust.

Today we have been informed that Mr. Householder has done a version of The Warrior Song for the United States Marine Corps.

Oh, hell, yes.

I sent the URL to my son.
He's a former Marine that just graduated from Rutgers with a dual degree in mathematics and ecomonomics.

I've long known that the most wonderful words that a person can hear are: "US Marines Ma'am, we're here to get you out."

Mess with a Marine and you get the entire Corps and the entire Navy turning you into a puddle of goo.

I had the pleasure of introducing the "Warrior Song" to a bunch of grunts at a house party while I was stationed at Camp Johnson, NC. It made my month to see how moved they were by it and how to find it again to share once they got back to base.
Since you are the one who originally brought that song to my attention, I feel it's only appropriate to share that pleasure with you.
