The feeling of pride and a sense of being a part of being something bigger than I could think of is what goes thru my mind every time I loom at my eagle globe and anchor, to know that I earned my title on my own and to know that my brothers in arms will always be there for me even if I do leave the corps, theres two things you'll remember vividly about boot camp and that's stepping on the yellow foot prints and getting to the top of the reaper and receiving your EGA, thank you marine corps for making me the humble marine I am today.
