JOINT BASE CHARLESTON, S.C. –
"Being a Marine means having the strictest standards, the longest hours and the greatest pride. I believe the Marine Corps Birthday is important for multiple reasons. It is an opportunity to celebrate our history and it allows us to physically pass the torch from the oldest Marine, to the youngest. Carving the way for future generations while never forgetting the past." - U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Ryan Goodly, Naval Consolidated Brig Charleston locksmith.
