America’s Sergeant Major is asking that people consider supporting a fundraising run a young woman is doing on behalf of the International Association of Firefighters and in honor of Marine Sgt. Joe L. Wrightsman, who died while serving in Afghanistan.
Please check it out and, if you feel moved to do so, make a contribution.
Also, while your at Castra Praetoria (Am’s Sgt. Major’s site), check out his post about Marine bearing. I really liked it because it’s true — no one in America carries himself (or herself) as a Marine does.
