Now that is the first time I have heard it put that way! As I was preparing for my next real estate class for military personnel, a gentleman walked in and started asking me questions.
He was in uniform, and I am pretty sure he had a gun or three, so I put down my notes and listened attentively.
"Public speaking is most people's number one fear", he said.
"Well, Sir, the speaking doesn't really bother me, but standing in front of fifty plus Marines is pretty intimidating."
He actually looked shocked.
"How can you be intimated by us?"
"We are just America's 911."
He smiled and went about his business, which is pretty important business.
Take a moment and think about it, yes, they are America's 911.
I am so glad they answer when we call.
Beaufort, South Carolina is so proud to be home to so many of America's finest.
