With several hundred Massachusetts guardsmen helping to provide security at the Boston Marathon April, 15, two blasts killed three and injured more than a hundred Monday.  Many noticed that within seconds of the bombs detonating the guardsmen moved in, working to help the victims amid the chaos.

The thoughts of the entire Defense News team are with the victims of yesterday’s attack and their families.

As President Obama said in his remarks last night:

“We still do not know who did this or why.  And people shouldn’t jump to conclusions before we have all the facts.  But make no mistake — we will get to the bottom of this.  And we will find out who did this; we’ll find out why they did this.  Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice.”
