    I agree. That is a very high "cool factor" gift. Might need a better display container though.

    That would go well with my cup of Baghdad sand cupsand. (Explained)

    But I suppose Iwo Jima was far more for the Marines to hold on to since it was mostly their blood in the sand.

    I do wonder when the people of this Empire will ever learn to love and remember moments in history not by wars and death tolls, but by deeds of generosity and greatness. Perhaps once we no longer have an empire and kill foreigners for corporate profit, I assume...
