    Once a Marine

    $16.99
    The former enlisted Marines whose stories you will read in this book have a common thread. The common thread is that they became one of the few, the proud, the Marines. They joined and entered the Vietnam war when their country called. They fought and returned home to adjust to normal lives by themselves. These are the life stories, told in their own words, of how Marine Corps vets came home, built families, businesses and are living the American dream today. Many still live their lives today with the same traditions and values taught to them by the Marine Corps and have adjusted after the traumatic experience of a war. Marine Corps values are easy to state as: Honor, Courage, and Commitment. The Marine Corps defines these values in the following way: -Honor as demonstrating integrity in all one does, and accepting responsibility and accountability for one's actions. - Courage as doing the right thing, in the right way, and for the right reasons. - Commitment as devotion to the Corps and one's fellow Marines. All Marines, former and active duty, live and fight under this same creed. Read about these men who left the Corps and the war behind and used this experience as a stepping stone to success and happiness. Learn More
