There was a ceremony at the Marine Corps Museum yesterday awarding the Navy Cross to two Marines, Capt. Ademola Fabayo and Staff Sgt. Juan Rodriguez-Chavez, for actions under fire in Kunar Province, Afghanistan.
Never saw so many Marine officers and senior NCOs in one place before. Uniforms perfect, they were gathering to honor two of their own. I only took one picture. I took it because I had never seen a Sgt. Major of the Marine Corps before.
We can’t all be heroes, because somebody has to sit on the curb and applaud when they go by.
