"Greater love hath no man than this; that a man lay down his life for his friends," John 15:13
This quotation is inscribed on a plaque that rests on a tri-faced structure within the air station's Combined Explosive Ordnance Disposal Unit building. Besides the plaque, the wall is covered in portraits of Marines, 35 in all. The first portrait is of Gunnery Sgt. Michael Clark, the last of Gunnery Sgt. Justin Schmalstieg.
All the photos show Marines in either full combat gear or a candid portrait in civilian attire. There is not an official photo in the whole bunch, as one might see when visiting one of the squadrons and seeing the who's-who wall of personnel.
No one on the wall is alive.
