The Wish to Serve

Having a brother of my own in the Marines, I will tell you first-hand that the sacrifice these men and women give is truly unfathomable. This week, we remember all that our brave men and women of the Marine Corps do for us every day by taking a look at a few of the wishes they have helped us grant. These wishes are just another way for us to see how wonderful and strong the Marines are – and what great role models they are as they stand for the young people of our country. Semper Fi.
