    Be Thankful for What you have

    The night before the burial of her husband 2nd Lt. James Cathey of the United States Marine Corps, killed in Iraq, Katherine Cathey refused to leave the casket, asking to sleep next to his body for the last time. The Marines made a bed for her, tucking in the sheets below the flag. Before she fell asleep, she opened her laptop computer and played songs that reminded her of "Cat", and one of the Marines asked if she wanted them to continue standing watch as she slept.
    "I think it would be kind of nice if you kept doing it" she said.
    "I think that's what he would have wanted".

    -Not sure what is more honorable: Being married to this faithful wife to the end or the Marine standing next to the casket watching over them both.

    I dont think people understand the sacrifices some are willing to go through for us !!
    God Bless you Katherine Cathey may god bless and keep you.

    Thats a true U.S. Marine right there. Those guys sacrifice everything they have for our country. I grew up an Army brat and i almost went into the Marines after high school. I have nothing but respect for those who serve our country.

    growing uo around the military, i have noticed that the Marines produce a lot of good soldiers and really good men and woman. I guess thats why thier motto is "The few, The PROUD, The Marines.
