A really sad and poignant story

Neptunus Lex has an amazing story about the power of two things: the ability of the internet to connect people who would otherwise never know about each other, and the power of friendship and devotion to one's fellow man.

Before I post the link, I think its appropriate to look again at James Micheners words about the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines who serve America:

"Where do we get such men? They leave this ship and they do their job. Then they must find this speck lost somewhere on the sea. When they find it, they have to land on its pitching deck. Where do we get such men?" - Rear Admiral George Tarrant in James Michener's The Bridges at Toko-Ri




Now, go read this story. If you are not sad, or have tears in your eye at the end, you don't have a heart.
