Heroes

A day to be proud of our armed forces, even when unarmed.  From the August 21, 2015 Daily Mail:
 Unarmed US Marines foil suspected terrorist attack onboard high-speed train between Amsterdam and Paris after they take down Kalashnikov-wielding Moroccan gunman known to intelligence services
  • A suspected Moroccan terrorist opened fire with a Kalashnikov on board a high speed train in northern France
  • Eyewitnesses said two U.S. Marines on the train disarmed the 26-year-old gunman and pinned him to the ground 
  • French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve praised the Marines who almost certainly 'averted a disaster' 
  • The gunman is understood to have boarded the train, which had more than 500 passengers, in Brussels, Belgium

Lots of positive comments from people around the world.  The question now is, Will Obama punish them for making Islamic extremists love us less?

Where's the TV-movie? Later reports indicate U.S. Air Force, and Oregon National Guard.  Still wonderful!

Later reports indicate a U.S. Airman, an Oregon National Guardsman, and a civilian (college student) from Sacramento.

It's not just the Marines you need to watch out for.
