What do these pictures mean to you? How do they make you feel?
For only a small percent of individuals, this is a moment that will forever be engrained into their mind. This is the moment where nothing else matters. Everything they have done and trained for, has led up to this exact moment. This is the moment men and women cry, not from pain, not from sadness, but because of the transformation they have endured. They are no longer a regular person, no longer a civilian. This is the moment they are, and forever will be called a United States Marine.
