    A name or another make understandable we are men of honor and valor, where ever we live and what else may be our name. Substantially we are heroes, unborn heroes whose heroism codify who we are, what we do and why, codify what our DNA and our essence. Unborn warriors, we act for freedom and valors, we act for honor, democracy, human rights respect and, on doing so, are making visible our natural conformation, our warrior character, that is not an imposed one but a natural one that live on us and make us what we are and the why we act just die for what we feel rigth, answering to democratic aspiration and essence. A name or another is the same, as the same we all are, all aimed to rescue, save, make human rights a reality substantially respected, all aimed to defend and offer our life on an excalation growing ever more, all aimed to sacrifice and serve, just our last breathe and also after. That make us the iron men we are, the stones, the diamonds we are and make visible what drive us to make sacre our life, offering it as a natural one, as a natural expression of our mission. That is what we are, that is why substantially a name or another change not the essence that is constituting us and the why we are and act, the why be a servant and defender signify be unborn heroes, Semper Fi and semper operating on else where condition and situation
