Eagle Globe and Anchor Emblem
If there ever was a time for there to be Marines or for the nation to need their Marines, it’s now.
Expect more from us because we tell them they should expect more because we tell them we have the hardest training, we tell them that we get the best people, we tell them that we exhibit the virtues of honor, courage and commitment. You’re a United States Marine. Just because you got that Eagle Globe and Anchor in bootcamp, that’s just the beginning. And we really have to think about living to this image in everything that we do as individuals and as units because the American people expect us to.
You know, we took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States (PDF) against enemies foreign and domestic to bear true faith and allegiance to the same. Not when it’s convenient, not when you feel like it, not when I’m not too tired and not when it’s not a bother to me. We have to live this image.
What is Virtues of Honor?
Honor is living with a sense of respect for what you believe is right. It is living by the virtues, showing great respect for yourself, other people, and the rules you live by. When you are honorable, you don’t have to feel ashamed of who you are or what you are doing. You are worthy of respect.
