When I was still wearing a salad suit, we had a very healthy rivalry with various Marine units we came in contact with.
Rivalry does not mean lack of respect.
This weekend I have received some e-mails from several Gentle Readers about a request from BlackFive regarding a Marine unit currently in the Sandbox.
BlackFive did an interview with the CO of USMC Regimental Combat Team Six. In short, Colonel Simcock would like his Marines to know that -- despite what the TeeVees in the chow hall, in quarters and everywhere else say -- that Americans really do support them.
BlackFive is asking folks to send supportive e-mails to those Marines.
Done, and done. I am more than proud to do so.
The e-mail for those boys is: RCTfirstname.lastname@example.org
RCT-6 has their own blog at: http://fightin6thmarines.vox.com/
I would ask that each of my Gentle Readers take the minute or so required to hit their e-mail button and send those kids an 'Attaboy'.
Thank you, and God bless.
