CAMP LEATHERNECK, Helmand Province, Islamic Republic of Afghanistan – June 18, 2009

“It’s not about how long your life is, 80 years, 100 years,” said Lt. Col. Christian Cabaniss on June 5 to the men of 2nd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, Marine Expeditionary Brigade-Afghanistan. “Your measure is what you do with the time that you have. The things you do now, people will remember, and they will remember forever!” Cabaniss, the battalion commander, gathered his Marines for possibly the last time as a unit before departing Camp Leatherneck to take part in what he labeled, “a summer of decisions in Afghanistan.” (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl.
