Front lines collided in Thursday's horror

Chattanooga Police Chief Fred Fletcher said the actions of his officers at Thursday's terrorist incident at the Navy and Marine reserve center made him "never prouder to be a police officer."

The names had begun to trickle out by early Friday - the few, the proud, the Marines.

By now, most of America knows which Marines we're talking about, the ones killed in a hail of bullets late on a warm Thursday morning at the Navy and Marine reserve center off Amnicola Highway by a 24-year-old Chattanooga man whose motive is still unclear.
