Received in an email. According to Snopes this is Real - Origins: This is a real picture, taken in Iraq on 9 September 2003 by the Baker Company, with the 7th Marines, 1st Battalion, to honor the victims of the September 11 terrorist attacks on the U.S. According to the Rock Hill, South Carolina, Herald: Posted at Magic City by R.P.

The attached photo was forwarded from one of the last U.S Marine companies in Iraq. They would like to have it passed to as many people as possible, to let the folks back home know That they remember why they're there and that they remember those who've been lost.
Message from Iraq
The proud warriors of Baker Company wanted to do Something to pay tribute To our fallen comrades So since we are part of the only Marine Infantry Battalion left in Iraq the one way that we could Think of doing that is By taking a picture of Baker Company saying the way we feel. It would be awesome if you could find a way to share This with our fellow countrymen. I was wondering if there was any way to Get this into your Papers to let the world know that 'WE HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN' And are proud to serve our country.

Yes.. It is like that!
Count your blessings, pray for them,
The next time when...
The other car cuts you off and you must hit the brakes, Or you have to park a little further from Walmart than you want to be, Or you're served slightly warm food at the restaurant, Or you're sitting and cursing the traffic in front of you, Or the shower runs out of hot water, Think of them...
Protecting your freedom!
