I saw a guy in the plane yesterday with this embroidered on his rig. I looked it up.


And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt-offering.


Must have lost someone in the Marine barracks bombing I figure.

Interesting. Wonder if that Lebanon connection is really why that's there. Did he look old enough to have been a part of it, or maybe just knew someone there?

Either way, interesting thing to memorialize it with if so.

Ya, he could have been old enough, he also had some unit patch on his jumpsuit, not official issue but I dont recall what it said.
I'f he's around today I'm going to ask him about it.

I'd be interested in knowing what he has to say. That was a fucking terrible day, I remember footage of Marines digging their buddies out of the rubble....sticks in my head and could have been the first time I really started scrutinizing the ROP.

The scrutiny is over....my judgement has arrived long ago.

If you get a chance to ask the guy about it, post it to this thread if you don't mind.

He's not around today. I'll keep an eye out for him though and post here when I get a chance to ask him.
