So A Marine Decides To Sit Behind Two Police Officers At Local Restaurant....
United States Marine Corps Lance Corporal Joseph Cadena is used to putting his life on the line for others, it's almost second nature to him. And his story shows you how his duty as a Marine is not just limited to missions but extends back home also.
Lance Corporal Cadena posted his experience on Facebook after what he did when he saw two police officers from Fort Worth, Texas enjoying a quick bite to eat while on-shift.
"Tonight I ate dinner behind two Fort Worth police officers, but let me tell you why it was important," he starts his message by saying so.
The incident took place four days after two fellow officers were shot and hospitalized. And no longer than 2 months ago, five officers from the next-largest department, a county over (Dallas PD) were assassinated.
So, you ask?

Lance Corporal Cadena says that night he sat purposefully behind these officers. Positioned himself between them and the door. He sat and had his dinner, while the officers laughed and joked and enjoyed their time with each other (He said that he had to mention this because some forget that police officers are normal people just like you and me).
"I sat there silently after I finished my meal, and continued to watch both exits, while they ate, I did not leave until after they left," he continues his post.
He was unarmed at the time of the incident but should the situation have called for it, he says he would have sacrificed his life for theirs.
In his post, he says it's not crazy sacrificing his life for them. People, he didn't even know. Because... " Have you ever stopped and thought about the fact... that is what police officers are doing every single day?
I am a United States Marine. I know what brotherhood is.
Even though these men are not Marines, they know what it is like to serve their country, their community, and the ones they love... and for that they are my brothers. I will stand watch over them, they way they stand watch over me.
Enjoy your dinner, Blue. Green has your 6."
