WASHINGTON — A quick-moving fire in the nation’s capital could have turned tragic Wednesday afternoon, when flames raced through a building home to more than 100 senior citizens.
But when the smoke went up, Marines came running.
“These are our neighbors. They needed help. We had to act,” said Capt. Trey Gregory.
The fire was about 200 yards from their small outpost in downtown Washington, D.C. When they got there, a construction worker told them all they needed to know.
“He yelled to us, ‘There’s more people in there,’ and that’s when the Marines decided we need to go get them,” said Cpl. Magdaleno Arroyo.

One has to recognize an organization with examples like this. And, it’s not an outlier.
That’s why “we”, meaning the politicians and bureaucrats, can’t waste them with unclear goals, strategies, and tactics.
Inspirational men DESERVE to be valued.
