Sergeant Michael Curtin found March 6, 2002

During the rescue and recovery efforts in Oklahoma, Curtin was walking past an area that had been checked previously for casualties. Out of the corner of his eye, he caught a glimpse of some blue material with a red strip on it. He knew exactly what it was, the dress blue trouser leg of a Marine. He had discovered the remains of Capt. Randy Guzman, an officer in charge of the recruiting office at the Oklahoma City Federal Building.

Because the dangerous location, Curtin and a few others had to request special permission to endanger themselves to recover Guzman's remains. They were granted a four-hour window and were able to recover the body. The part of the whole recovery that caught the Nation's attention was how Guzman was carried out. A U.S. flag was draped over his body and it was ceremoniously saluted as they took it from the site.

When asked why he risked his own life to recover the remains of another Marine he simply replied, Marines don't leave their own behind.

Book of proverbs 10:25 As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more: but the righteous is an everlasting foundation.

“Men who have offered their lives for their country know that patriotism is not the fear of something, it is the love of something.” Adlai Stevenson

Given the fact steel buildings collapsed, the chances of finding crosses in the rubble are quite high.

I'm a little annoyed by people who try to find meaning in it or attribute anything special to it.

Why are you annoyed at that? Was it wrong for people to be reminded of their faith in such a terrible time?

Granted.

I'm a little annoyed by those who try to dismiss the simple things that may give others some small sense of comfort in the midst of tragedy.

You would be amazed how many crosses are found in areas where there has been major destruction of everything else...

You might not choose to believe it but thier are Miracles in the Cross for those who believe...

Out of trajedy is where many people find meaning because they find God...

Comrades Clinton and their ACLU pals probably demanded that it be taken down and destroyed.

This is incredible. It is still so hard to look at these pictures, but so necessary. I fume at the pieces of dirt that did this, and the left who would stomp on the blood of those we lost for political gain.

I love my country, and I grieve for those we lost that day, and all of the other days that Islamic Jihadist murderers took the lives of Americans and didn't pay one thing for doing so because of a corrupt administration who wanted to pretend all was peace and prosperity. God will judge them all.

God Bless our Troops and our President! /rant off

“Everyone can recognize history when it happens. Everyone can recognize history after it has happened; but it only the wise person who knows at the moment what is vital and permanent, what is lasting and memorable.”

Sir Winston Churchill

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
