“You’re going to be taken home by the Marines today”

October 11, 2012

Saw this story earlier today and missed the great quote.

A US Marine sees a handicapped boy’s prosthetic break and gives him a piggy-back ride for the last mile to the finish line.

A great gesture and kind deed.  As one would expect of a U.S. Marine when they aren’t blowing things up and making bad people die for their nations or beliefs.

…“We saw Pfc. Morgan carrying him and that’s when all the Marines lined up,” Gunnery Sgt. Wilbur Anderson told ABC. “We got into column of twos. I ran up to Ben and I said, ‘Hey, you’re going to be taken home by the Marines today.’”
