USS KEARSARGE - Religion is something fashionable to question or even avoid in youth, something to cling to in times of need, and something that permeates every aspect of culture, in its own way. It's a polarizing topic in any conversation. One of those things you may not want to bring up at dinner, as it takes people in any number of different ways, usually with amplified enthusiasm.
The Marines of the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit belong to one of the three Marine expeditionary units stationed on the East Coast. Purpose built to be a rapid crisis response force, MEUs are designed to operate in harm's way – in any situation that presents itself. Uncertainty, even from day to day, is a fact of life for the Marines and sailors of the MEU and Amphibious Squadron 4.
Faith or religion by any name is a source of solace for many.

If it be awful that death be so deadly in the very house of youth, it is still in a sense, beautiful that youth should be so young in the house of death.... If our soldiers seem too young to die in battle, at least they are young enough to live in battle; and death does not find them dead.
--G. K. Chesterton, 24Nov1917
