Preston sends us a link to the short Washington Times story about some Marines who escorted some ladies to a ball;

Jacob DeMille to the 6th annual Cinderella Ball, at the Willard InterContinental Hotel, in Washington, D.C., Sunday, June 5, 2011. The ball, put on by The House, Inc., is for local students with life-threatening illnesses or disabilities.

    This retired Army NCO salutes a very classy act by these Marines. Semper Fidelis, young Marine.

    I needed a pick-me-up after the Skins loss yesterday.

    Keep up the good work, USMC.

    I didn’t think a Marine could look any better in his dress uniform but I was wrong. That Marine’s date makes his uniform look better than any other I have seen.

    The look on that young lady’s face is utterly priceless and no doubt she’ll look back happily on that evening for the rest of her life.

    Semper Fi, Marine.

    Not sureof the exact quote, but to the effect, “There are none who stand so tall as when they stoop to hold the hand of a little child.”
