Marine Corps Assignments: Italy

Jeremy Bess: "I'm Sergeant Bess, Marine Security Guard at American Embassy, Rome, Italy. Marines guard embassies all around the world. Marines are well-known for being great warriors, great protectors. It just makes the - the embassy personnel feel a lot safer knowing that they have a Marine standing guard."

Anna Borg: "The Marine, uh, security detachment is absolutely critical to this embassy. It's something which gives us great, great comfort as we walk in. I think there's a very deep appreciation for Marines."

Jeremy Bess: "The Marines security guard program right now is three years. I'll receive orders and I could be anywhere in the world this time next year."
