This Photo was taken by a Local Marine and in His Words he says..."I took this picture on my way out of Afghanistan at a main base. It was at a memorial for all the Marines that were killed in action under that command. Among these dog tags pictured are the 15 Marines and Sailors killed in action from my battalion, 2nd Battalion 9th Marines, including a few of my friends"
