It’s such a crazy time to be an American this weekend. Independence Day approaches tomorrow and the nation is in the middle of an explosive COVID-19 pandemic that just keeps getting worse. What would be a blessing any other year—July 4th falling on Saturday—has turned into just another day for many Americans forced to quarantine and social distance.
What could a Commanding Officer possibly tell their Marines?
Shit sucks. Don’t get the rona. Stay inside.
Happy 4th of July, Marines.
