Gallows Humor

This is a hilarious piece of video:

Here's why this is NOT the same as George W Bush saying "bring 'em on." This Marine is already in harm's way. He's already in the fight. He's already exposed to danger. And he's a swaggering badass who is ready to back it up.

I'm telling you, we do not deserve these good men and women. They are making sacrifices every single day that no one appreciates, and a little gallows humor reminds us that we are not worthy of them unless we work to bring them home and get them out of that meat grinder.
