The attached picture is from Memorial Day. These Marines of 3d Bn, 11th Marines had a long weekend and could've gone to the beach, home to visit their families, or anywhere else they wanted.

What they did was drive 1,000 miles from 29 Palms, California to Dubois, Wyoming to stand in the snow and pay respects to LCpl Chance Phelps and his family. I know this gave the Phelps family great comfort and pride.

UPDATE: Chance's last stand - a message from Gen Kelley.
