Stories of Kindness from Around the World

For the love of marines

--by bkissed, posted Jan 4, 2007
My parents live in California by the Marine base. Next door, several marines live. When these special  men go to Iraq, my parents make it a point to go every week to rake and pull all the weeds from their garden. This is cute, my mom mentioned to Joel, one of the Marines, that it's so dark when they leave with no light.  Well Joel was headed to Iraq and guess what he did.  Joel left the outside light on for a year until he got back.
