All Blessings on the United States Marine Corps:

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: We are lucky to have United States Marines.
It is, in fact, the people that have stayed with the young Marine, the faces of waving children peering from behind a mother's dress or hefted onto a father's shoulders as the American motorcade passed. Strange enjoyed handing out the small gifts he and his fellow soldiers carried with them. "You realize pretty quickly that all kids, regardless of their language or the country in which they live, love candy."
Has there ever been an army like these Marines? Has there ever been a unit, sworn to war, so decent even to the children of the foe?
