Despite all the hardships that they had been through all these years, the whole group of the ever dependable Marine Corps had celebrated its most cherished day in different places such as Al Qaim, Fallujah and Ramadi respectively; notwithstanding the dangerous reality that they were all in a war zone in the name of justice, freedom and truth.
