A testament to the Corps.

A testament to the Corps.

Recently had the opportunity to meet with Marty Brennaman, Hall of Fame broadcaster for the Cincinnati Reds, and an idea for a unique photo came to mind. I asked him to place his fist (with one of his World Series rings) on the table next to mine, held out the camera and took the shot. Understandably puzzled, he asked what type of ring I had. When I showed him the Marine ring my wife had given me he exclaimed, “Now that’s impressive! That is impressive.” Turns out that a brother of his is a Marine as well and we had an enjoyable chat. Just goes to show that the truly great know what’s truly great!

Semper Fi, Brothers!
