I once ran in a white t-shirt, utilities, and boots through a modern major city in a shaky ally country. Traffic was stopped as we went. We ran in perfect cadence, and the sound was deafening- even our boots hitting the ground thundered... not to mention we have some cool cadence... It was the entire Marine element of the 6th fleet, in one place, at one time. It was the precision that made every boot strike, clap, and return of cadence so memorable. It resonated. it really did thunder in sound. Think for a moment of approximately 3000 men in absolutely perfect unison on an urban street. That is not a college band, that is the United States sending a not- so- subtle message to the populace. To you, it's not much to note. To me, I cannot think of anyone but a U.S. Marine Infantryman that could live that experience. Maybe a Soviet sailor that watched us go by could tell you what he thought in that port city, as he was there. Such was the cold war.

There. I thought about that. Something you would never hear of otherwise. Extroverted, lol

I thought I applauded this when you wrote it. So you get one today. That would have been awesome to watch. Better still to me a part of the group as they all watched you go by.
