Before the title of Marine can be earned, the decision has to be made—to commit to a calling that puts service ahead of self, purpose above pleasure, and the determination to win against all obstacles and adversaries. Becoming a Marine affects the entire family, and often even the entire community. It’s a decision that needs to be discussed by everyone involved. As you prepare your loved one for the milestones ahead, consider your own transformation—from that of loving mom, dad, teacher or mentor to the unbelievably proud resource they can always count on.
