We received the hyperlink below last night  in our daily E mail from a contact within the Naval Intelligence Professional's Association . This is the story of 19 U.S. Marines who were killed in action on Makin Island in the South Pacific August 17-18, 1942. The Marines were over run and forced to retreat, leaving their dead behind. But before they left they asked the native people to bury their dead in such a way that the Japanese could not find them. This the native people did, and kept the burial site secret through out the long and brutal Japanese occupation of the Island. The penalty for protecting these marine graves could have been death. In 1999 the graves were recovered and the Marines notified. The video that we have hyper linked you to is the  moving story of the day the Marines returned in December of 1999 to recover their own from their faithful caretakers. While this has apparently been around YouTube a while we bring it to you now in the belief that every American should experience this event.
