A Tribute to 36 Marines Who Returned Home After 70 Years Tops Our Heroes in Action Videos

A touching video honoring 36 Marines who returned home to America after 70 years, along with tribute to Bronze Star recipient 1st Lt. James Salka, highlight this week's Heroes in Action military videos.

Along with those two videos, we also have a great video showcasing a Marine Multi-Purpose Canine (MPC). And if you like loud explosions, make sure to scroll down to the last military video clip and crank up the volume for Navy video footage of the MK-45, the MK-38, and the MK-76 Navy deck guns firing rounds.

Thank you again to all our brave women and men who have served and continue to serve our country. We appreciate your service and your sacrifice.
