One thing about great about the armed forces in Mexico is that in spite of the tremendous fear that the cartels are trying to instill, there are still those who would join or stay to fight them.
Just as great are the Mexicans who have to go through such trying times that no other race in this world has ever gone through, not even in World War II!!!
