©  EXIF
Retired U.S. Marine Gunnery Sergeant Edward S. Bardwell of Hemet, California, doing what he loves to do---wear his uniform at public events commemorating the military in one form or another. Note the Purple Heart and rugged hands of a warrior comforting a child.
He spent 37 years on active duty and still provides a military presence at funerals of veterans of any service. It's men like this that makes our country strong.

Hi Jim could not miss this one, you will never know how many times I wish I had the chance this little girl has to embrace a person who (my grandfather in my case) served their country with honor.
