Bravo, Marines!

A heavily armed gunman opened fire on a high-speed train travelling from Amsterdam to Paris on Friday, injuring two people before being overpowered by two American soldiers who were on board.
They were apparently Marines and one was apparently seriously wounded.

Update: Not Marines; they were three guys who were friends dating back to middle school, plus one Brit. One a civilian, one an Air Force paramedic, and one a specialist of some flavor in the Oregon National Guard.

Yeah, but the Marines should send them a "Bravo Zulu, come by 8th and Eye Friday night, the beer is on us."
