"When I received my Eagle, Globe, and Anchor I had felt like everything I had accomplished before was so insignificant. I had never worked so hard for anything, or been so proud of myself and my brothers to the left and right of me. Personally, the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor was a symbol that meant I was part of a family I could rely on at any given time.” -Lance Corporal C. Miller


Lance Corporal Miller is from Big Spring, TX and is currently serving as a Motor Transport Operator in the Marine Corps Reserves. 🦅🌎⚓️

Motivator of the Week!
Lance Cpl. Kenneth Shirley, an assault breach vehicle operator with 2d CEB, dedicates his personal time to improving himself through rigorous physical fitness.

The Pearl, Mississippi native recently ran 31.5 miles during a memorial run in honor of fallen 2d CEB Marines.

Quoting Ronald Reagan, Lance Cpl. Shirley draws inspiration by remembering: “the greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets people to do the greatest things.” Lance Cpl. Shirley was selected as 2d MARDIV's Motivator of the Week for demonstrating the attributes of a model NCO.

Congratulations, Lance Cpl. Kenneth Shirley!
