When it comes down to it. I don't care if you're in the Army or the Air Force or the Marines. What counts is you're risking your life for this country. If you have guts to do that then you're alright in my book.
“My dad is a teacher. Today he picked me up from school with a 15 year old boy in the car. The boys name is Zack, and he needed a ride home. For 45 minutes I sat in the car with this boy and we talked, laughed, and I had a good time with him. Once he got out of the car my dad told me that he had autism. I had no idea, I only thought he was a little weird, and I just accepted him. My dad told me that I probably made his day by talking to him and laughing with him because he doesn’t have many friends. The funny thing is, that boy was the nicest person I’ve talked to all day today and i rather talk to him again for a hour than a “normal” boy. Sometimes, just sometimes, the “problem” children are the ones who shine the brightest.”—
The bond you have with a fellow Marine and the bond you will have forever is as close as you will ever get to someone. I want nothing more than to earn the honorary title as a United States Marine. I want to fight for my country and I want to make everyone in it safe. I live by those words the few say, Semper Fidelis, and I will never betray that. :) So yea that’s why.
