Cost/Benefit

Via OldNFO, I found a slideshow of pictures from WWII, a lot of good airplane photos, and some that remind me what my freedom cost. The one that really gave me pause was this one, a picture of the 5th Marine Division’s cemetery on Iwo Jima. Nothing I have done in my life is worth what these guys paid for me.

Of the Marines on Iwo Jima, uncommon valor was a common virtue.
–Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz
