Mr. Cefalu, I thank you for posting this. The Marines I have known have, with very few exceptions, been strong and honorable men.
I have few regrets from the life I've lived. One of the few is that I did not join the USMC when I had the chance many years ago.
As you say, sir, Semper Fi! I've been told that it is acceptable for non-Marines to use that phrase to salute Marines. If I have offended you by doing so, I apologize.
Have a great day today and a better day tomorrow. Stay safe, and may God bless. I wish you His peace.

If you seek to do battle with me this day, you will receive the best that I am capable of giving.
It may not be enough, but it will be everything that I have to give and it will be impressive for I have constantly prepared myself for this day.
I have trained, drilled and rehearsed my actions so that I might have the best chance of defeating you.
I have kept myself in peak physical condition, schooled myself in the martial skills and have become proficient in the applications of combat tactics.
You may defeat me, but I’m willing to die if necessary. I do not fear death for I have been close enough to it on enough occasions that it no longer concerns me.
But, I do fear the loss of my honor and would rather die fighting than to have it said that I was without courage.
So I will fight you, no matter how insurmountable it may seem, to the death if need be, in order that it may never be said of me that I was not a warrior.
Semper Fi, Brian.
