I wanted to wish all the veterans of Charlie Company 1st Battalion 23rd Marine Regiment a sincere thank you this Veterans Day.  I hope this email finds you well and in good spirits.  I can never stop thanking you for your dedicated service to our nation and our beloved Marine Corps.  You all are an inspiration for the future of our Marine Corps.  I hope you had an excellent Marine Corps Birthday and again thank you for your service.

Never underestimate the fury of patient man.


The Darkness cannot extinguish your light. Your WILL. Your determination. No matter what is happening—no matter how hard the fight is. As long as you keep fighting—you win.” 


Every time you train, train with the motivation and purpose that you will be the hardest person someone ever tries to hurt or kill.


Pray, I never come for you.
