WSJ ran an excerpt from a 2010 John Kelly speech this week.
Body of the WSJ content is blocked by a firewall, but I found a prior story elsewhere pulled from the same Kelly address...
Kelly's words make for some powerful prose.
Story of the same two Marines, as told by CBS News in 2009:
We honor those on the front lines overseas who stand their ground.
But why do we continually make up excuses for those here at home, mostly in Washington, for failing to stand their ground in protecting the country and Constitution?
