Today is the 236th anniversary of the United States Marines Corps, and we at American Rattlesnake would like to extend our most heartfelt thanks to the courageous, dedicated men and woman who have served or are currently serving in the USMC. I’d like to single out fallen Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, who prior to defending the American homeland served as a police officer in Michigan and as a United States Marine. Even as the craven leadership of the Justice Department continues to obstruct a probe into the causes of Agent Terry’s death, to the consternation of his family, the questions of how and why he died remain unanswered.
As we honor the heritage of America’s Marine Corps, let’s not forget the service this country’s few and proud have rendered to this country both in and out of uniform. And let’s remember that some, such as Agent Brian Terry, have made the ultimate sacrifice for this country.
