Welcome home, Marines

Just happened to be at the gate (Las Vegas) as a plane-load of U. S. Marines arrived home from Iraq. These guys were mighty glad to be back. I couldn’t help thinking to myself that these guys are acting like they’re home for good. Hope so.

As they left the gate area, travelers burst into spontaneous applause. It was moving and –for a few seconds– nobody was thinking about politics.
