Royal Marine David Hart: A True Las Vegas Hero

Here's a sad but wonderful story from merry olde England. Royal Marine David Hart, a British soldier fighting in Afghanistan, took out a $403,800 life insurance policy before leaving for his tour of duty, which would be paid out in the event of his death. Unfortunately, David was killed by a Taliban mortar round a year ago.

In his will, he set aside money for a charity as well as for his family along with a $161,500 to send his friends and their significant others on a trip to Las Vegas.

We salute you Royal Marine David Hart, for being a hero in life and in death. Tonight we raise a glass in your honor.

Read the original story from The Sun UK.

Great story!

I've sent it to all my friends as a gentle nudge should they expire.

Marine Hart is quite a man. Not only does he make the ultimate sacrifice but he bestows abundant gifts on his friends. I think that the real gift to his friends would have been just to know him. They are really going to miss him.
