Inspirational testimonials and quotes
Our young Marines of today are courageous, willing to make sacrifices, and are marvelous team players. I am confident our Corps, and indeed our Nation, will be in great shape for a long time to come as these people continue to grow and assume greater positions of responsibility.
General James T. Conway
Today, women are in combat, that is just a reality. Thousands of women have been decorated for valor…and have given their lives. Today, what was once a band of brothers has truly become a band of brothers and sisters.
General Ann Dunwoody
