It was the evening before the funeral of a United States Marine, who lost his life defending America. His wife did not want to leave his side, asking to be allowed to sleep next to him, one last time. The Marines granted her wish, even making up a bed for her. Before falling asleep, she played songs that she had enjoyed with her husband, on her laptop. The Marine guard offered to let her be alone with her husband, but offered to stand watch if she wanted. The wife replied that she thought her husband would have liked the guard to remain. She stated that if the guard did not mind, she would appreciate it also. She was not alone that night.
It is for you to decide if it was more honorable having such a wife so faithful to the end, or having that Marine guard watching over both of them that last evening…………………………………….? God Bless America!
