The Marines Have Landed!

...or actually, evacuated. Last night my son came home along with 3 of his Marine buddies. They had to leave Camp Pendleton because of the fires, after moving all the vehicles out of harms way.

It was funny yesterday to hear some callers on talk shows ask "Where is the National Guard? Where are the Marines?" My guests chuckled and said, "It's kind of hard to fight a wall of fire with an M-16."

It's strange that some people don't understand that the firefighters are trained to fight fires...while the miitary is trained to keep us safe from our enemies. Everyone has their role!
