Justice

Booker: We don't care where you came from. We don't care what color you are; all recruits are treated the same way and given the same chances as well.

Swanson: The ability to be able to treat other people fairly, firmly and with justice, that's something that you learn in the Marine Corps.

Whang: It's a trait that you're exercising and being put to the test on, on a day-to-day basis.

Kuhn: It's crucial to the morale of the unit that justice is exhibited by the leader of that unit, whether it's the equal opportunity policy that we have or choosing exactly who's going to go onto what mission.

Whang: During my most recent deployment, I was interacting on a daily basis with local Iraqi officials, tribal leaders, resolving many local disputes and improving the local infrastructure. It taught me conflict resolution and understanding group dynamics.

Barikbin: Justice is required to enforce discipline to make sure that everybody is being treated equally, that discipline is being kept throughout the unit. My job in the courtroom is to make sure that you're innocent until proven guilty, that you're not treated unfairly in that respect.

Donahue: I've never met a Marine or even a civilian that minded being treated firmly, if it was fairly.
