Today & this week is the 72nd anniversary of six U.S. Marines raising the American flag on Iwo Jima
Here is what our erudite Marine Corps Contributing Editor & a Real Mud Marine, Jim Thompson, sent us:
"The men from Easy (now Echo) Company 2nd Bn, 28th Marines, immortalized by the Rosenthal photos and subsequently by the Marine Corps War Memorial, were there by pure coincidence. Every man who served on Iwo Jima was a hero including my 3rd Bn, 9th Marines Dad. While we have always thought one of the six was Corpsman Bradley, the discovery that it was actually PFC Harold Schultz should not diminish the service that Bradley provided to ‘his’ Marines.
Why this Anniversary is Significant:
Some of what this is about is-- Why you should hire Marines coming off active duty whenever possible.
Consider that 2 Marine generals & an Army intellect are our best hope for the new presidency.
Visit this memorial this summer. We need more Marines running things. Semper Fi.

The Country's business and news publications are posting articles and content on the growing stress, resistance, and outright concern that seem to growing every day.
HERE IS AN EXAMPLE:
Here is an article from this week's Business Week posted and you can gain more perspective from Washington Post.
"Americans are more stressed than ever, which shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to anyone living in America who owns a smartphone or TV. A new poll from the American Psychological Association shows that the nation’s stress levels in January were even worse than in August, in the thick of the angriest campaign in recent memory.
That stress penetrates party lines—including 76 percent of Democrats and 59 percent of Republicans—and age groups. While some believed anxiety levels would decrease after the election, once the campaigning wound down, it seems to be steadily moving in the opposite direction".
