At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.
~ Albert Schweitzer
Our title “United States Marine” is DESIRED BY MANY, EARNED BY FEW, and REVERED THE WORLD OVER. Above all else, we are a BAND OF BROTHERS AND SISTERS that I will remain connected to FOREVER.
This book is DEDICATED TO ALL MARINES. From the freshest boots off the yellow footprints at our Recruits Depots, to the beloved Marines that have laid down a LEGACY that most institutions could only HOPE to attain, THANK YOU.
Thank you for the 20 years you epitomized Honor, Courage and Commitment. Thank you for your sacrifices both at home and abroad. I wish you nothing but prosperity and success during our transition to peacetime. SEMPER FIDELIS!!!
