    She then had their baby by emergency C section shortly thereafter. The baby is fine.

    This is one of thousands of such stories from the war, of course. This one was just caught on film.

    Gives me so much insight and respect to the Marines. They did everything they could to help this widow get thru this terrible time.

    I'm glad she could sleep there if she wanted to. I hope she will find joy in her baby.

    Bless this poor woman and her child. The Marines standing guard were so sweet to allow her to stay overnight for the last time with her husband.:angel:

    Looking closer, I noticed she wasn't even sleeping, but was watching whatever they had on the PC about her hubby, I am assuming. I imagine she didn't sleep much and just spent her final night "with" him.

    The caption said "Before she fell asleep, she opened her laptop computer and played songs that reminded her of 'Cat,' and one of the Marines asked if she wanted them to continue standing watch as she slept."

    It is terrible and so very sad.
