Semper Fi

This ad for the Marine Corps has been popping up around the blogosphere recently. It will give you goosebumps.

I’ve been reading David Halberstam’s The Coldest Winter, a lengthy tome on the Korean War, and just finished his account of the heroic Marine retreat (“attack from a different direction”) at Chosin Reservoir. America’s Finest.

UPDATE: Here’s an earlier Marine ad, just as inspiring. (The link went bad, so I replaced it with another. Same commercial.)

And one more. Do you suppose these commercials have anything to do with headlines like this?
