Let’s hope that some day when liberalism tugs at his elbow this imprint of what a real man is remains with this boy.

Wow ... great story. The boy has clearly gone ‘way beyond where he thought his limits were. “Forever memories” for both of them.

On a lighter note, the Marine could be saying to the youngster,

"You are a puke. You are the lowest form of life on earth. You are not even a human being! You are nothing but unorganized grabastic pieces of amphibian sh!t! Because I am hard you will not like me, but the more you hate me, the more you will learn. I am hard, but I am fair. And my orders are to weed out all midgets who do not pack the gear to serve in my beloved Corps. Do you understand that maggot? " ** [/;D **

What was that daffy? Is the Marine stepping in front of the LEO for a particular reason?
