Good evening Marines, how does that headline sentence above make you feel? Any triggers in it? Feel a tightening in your gut and does your blood pressure increase a bit? Maybe a lot?
All Marines have a pack they are carrying. We are Marines after all. It is part of what our Service is. We haul the load, carry the pack, do what needs to be done. Some loudly, others silently. In this article from the Reboot Camp section of the Military Times, they cover what one veteran Marine did when all of his duty, service, and sacrifice culminated in something that could have had far different results had he not followed the path that opened up in front of him in that time of his life. Excellent transition story. Many are in this type of moment now. This is for you.
