Remember the faithful

National Review Online has a terrific piece on Darryl Worley and a few of the Marines he pays tribute to in his powerful song: “Have we forgotten?”
And the Wall Street Journal’s Weekend section includes an editorial note on one of the fallen whom we must remember: “Rabbi Max Wall was an army chaplain during World War II and spent four decades at Ohavi Zedek Synagogue in Burlington, Vt. On Monday he came out of retirement to deliver one more eulogy: for his grandson, 21-year-old Marine Cpl. Mark Evnin, killed in a firefight outside Baghdad. ‘I’ve stood on this pulpit many a day and have sought to bring comfort and support to the bereaved,’ the rabbi told mourners, according to the Burlington Free Press. ‘I never thought I would be in the same need as every one of you who I tried to console.’ Students at Cpl. Evnin’s alma mater, South Burlington High School, lined the street in front of their school Monday as the young Marine’s funeral procession passed by.”
