    To realize the value of ONE YEAR,
    ask any Marine who served in Vietnam.

    To realize the value of ONE MONTH,
    ask any family who lost a Marine 30 days before rotation home.

    To realize the value of ONE WEEK,
    ask any Marine how fast R&R flew by.

    To realize the value of ONE DAY,
    ask any Marine who missed being eligible for promotion by one day.

    To realize the value of ONE HOUR,
    ask any Marine in a hot LZ to wait that long for air support.

    To realize the value of ONE MINUTE,
    ask any Marine what his buddy was doing before he was hit.

    To realize the value of ONE SECOND,
    ask any Marine who was in Vietnam how long it would have taken for him to pack
    and be on the next flight home.

    To realize the value of ONE MILLI-SECOND,
    Ask any Marine if he’s proud to have been a Marine.
