Three young Marines —all in their Dress Blues, shoes spit shined, looking smart and clean— responded to a young woman’s screams for help in Detroit recently, chasing down a man who had just stolen her cell phone. Suffice it to say, the thief was caught and incredulous.
They may be “newby” Marines on temporary assignment at a recruiting station, but they have already absorbed the code. They heard the cries for help and responded instantly. Watch the video and you will enjoy the quality of their character.
They are a little shy, but they certainly have the qualities that make for good Marines. They have that proper balance of moral character, care for others and a willingness to carry the fight to those who wish to harm the innocent.
