Thank you Colleen and Valentin! Yes, it is a bit surreal, Colleen.

Picture this: Here it is Mardi Gras day in New O..........people all partying and so forth to different degrees-- :-)......and here comes the regimented, starched, precise group of white clad Marines. The red just pulls it all in. I have never had clothes that startched in my life! LOL
Thanks again, everyone. The Marines made this photo. I just happened to be there!
