    PALM COAST, Fla. (AP) — They wanted the picture to be just right, to look as close as possible to the one they'd taken together 50 years ago, back when their memories hadn't yet been clouded by the images of war.

    So on a recent Saturday morning, on the sun-drenched Atlantic shore of Cinnamon Beach on Florida's northeast coast, four U.S. Marine veterans gathered around a yellow longboard turned upright, trying to recreate a moment from five decades earlier.

    Bob Falk, 71, wearing a mirror-image blue-and-white striped shirt, leaned against the longboard's left side, resting his spare hand on his hip.

    Dennis Puleo, 69, removed his shoes, revealing the feet scarred by shrapnel, and pulled off his shirt, flanking the longboard on the right, mugging a wide smile for the camera with his arms extended.

    Tom Hanks (not that one), 69, stepped in front of the board and took in a long, deep breath, flexing his still-thick upper chest and sucking in his now-paunchy belly.

    Finally, Bob DeVenezia, 70, crouched down in front of Hanks, resting his elbows on his knobby knees, feeling Hanks' hands placed on his back.

    The picture couldn't be a perfect copy. They had gray hair and wrinkled skin and undefined stomachs now. But it didn't matter.

    For the first time in five decades, they were together, trying to get it right.

    The rest...

    And they're still tougher than most young people. Good for them.

    Time waits for no one, life just seems to go by in the blink of an eye. I'm not quite as old as those guys, but even now I find I ask myself more and more often where all the years went. Life is not yearly as long as you think. Each day now I am grateful for my health and whatever happiness there is, because there are far fewer tomorrows than there are yesterdays...

    20 years go by in a blink of an eye. I find it fascinating that so many people think they are immortal and have hundreds of years to spew bull shit. Life is short, it will pass you by

    The next best picture would be of these four Marines just beating the brakes off a crowd of Millennials.

    Saw this at the gym the other day. God bless them, and I still wouldn't fuck with any of them.

    I've read it in multiple articles; it's not money, it's not material wealth, it's not even health. It's friends, family and great relationships that will keep us going and happy in the golden years.

    I have some old friends from my navy days I would love to get together with, but I can't find but 1 of them, so I am insanely jealous of those guys and their prolonged friendship.

    The guys in the middle look better than some millennials.

    I spent a week at Cinnamon Beach last fall. That's about the age group there.
