Ryker received a package today from one of his favorite Marines. 💪@stocktonchristopher The support and kindness you have shown my son has me at a loss for words. Having a baby of your own to care for but going out your way to put a smile on his face speaks volumes as to what type of person you are. Thank you for everything you have done for Ryker and thank you for your service to our country.🇺🇸❤️

The crew of a 754th Tank Battalion M4 Sherman loading ammunition under the cover of camo netting in Bougainville, New Guinea, March, 1944. Bougainville is one of the most important yet lesser known battles of World War 2. Additionally, it is also one of the longest in the Pacific Theater. It was part of a large US Military offensive in conjunction with the British and her Commenwealth forces (mainly Australia) to surround Rabaul. Raubal was a massive Japanese military base in the Solomon Islands, a launching point for their attacks in the region since 1941. The Allied forces knew that they could not take it head on, so it was decided to surround the island and slowly choke it. To do this, dozens of islands all around Rabaul would have to be taken. One of these was Bougainville, an island just outside of the Solomon Islands on the very fringe of Papau New Guinea. On the 1st of November, Marines landed at Torokina encountering limited resistance and then moved inland into the vast and seemingly impenetrable jungles. Tanks and Marines fired at everything around them as they continued into the jungle, usually not even aiming at any particular target. However, the tanks quickly became bogged down in the mud and numerous swamps. The Marines were on their own in a vast and confusing jungle against a large Japanese garrison numbering in the thousands. For the next few months, they fought an enemy who could not be seen or found. The Marines and Army soldiers also had to battle the jungle as well. Razor sharp kunai grass made deep cuts that were hard to heal and easily became infected, the never ending torrential rain that rotted boots, clothes, and your skin, malaria, dysentery due to the lack of clean drinking water, etc. CONTINUED DOWN BELOW IN THE COMMENTS! -
Fall session OCS candidates got to experience a bit of snow, but they did not need to break the ice on the Quigley like their winter counterparts often do. U.S. Marine candidates of the Officer Candidate School, Charlie and Delta Company, participate in the Montfort Point Challenge at Quantico, Nov. 15. This was the candidates last event before commissioning the following Saturday. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. Quinn Hurt)
Oh you fancy huh? Last nights ball was a good one! Prolly the most sober I’ve been during one 😂, ya boy was ready to get out of Vegas.
If you know me, you know I just love every major ceremony the Marine Corps has. A time for us all to come together, build camaraderie, and celebrate our Marine Corps history.
Always stay moto Marines.
