For Flashback Friday, I offer you this photo of me at the Marine Corps Ball with a highly decorated Gunnery Sergeant and an old friend. His accomplishments are too numerous too mention, and his bravery in action too breathtaking to comprehend. He has been everywhere, done everything, saved lives, taken lives, and served his country with the kind of selfless loyalty that would humble the likes of Private Ryan.
And yet somehow, my head is twice the size of his. Go figure.
