Marines Baptized in Fallouja


No, not "baptism of fire"; that's what I too thought the story would be about. Baptism with water and the Holy Ghost. The L.A. Times has the story here. (A shame it wasn't Catholic, but it was clearly valid.)

It will be worth a couple of minutes of your time to play the "flash" programme. A marine liturgy. "I baptize you in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Oorah!"

Amen, to that.
