A Salute to Our Bruin Warriors

Hear! Hear! GO BRUINS. -N

With the Fourth of July just around the corner, I thought something along these lines would be rather appropriate.

While Bruins may have their differences, especially when it comes to what part of California they come from, or what NBA team they support, there is a group of Bruins all of us can get behind and support.

No disrespect to our Ben Ball Warriors who play their heart out for those four magic letters on their chest, but tomorrow, we should keep in mind these true Bruin warriors:

These, fellow Bruins, are those among our ranks who not only bleed blue and gold, but wear the uniform of our great Nation.

 

I think it's particularly commendable that these fellow Bruins have volunteered to serve in a time where war and danger are not some remote possibility, but very real.  Regardless of our feelings on Iraq and our president, it's fair to say we all owe these young men and women a real debt of gratitude.

(I should also mention I thought it was pretty cool that the BN for battalion was featured so prominently on their flag).
