For twenty years
This Marine has stood the watch

While some of us lay about our bunks at night
This Marine stood the watch

While others of us were attending schools
This Marine stood the watch

And, yes, even before many of us were born,
This Marine stood the watch

As our families watched the storm clouds of war brewing on the horizons of history
He stood the watch

This Marine looked ashore and saw his family often needing guidance
but he knew that he must stay because he had the watch.

For twenty years he stood the watch so that
Our fellow countrymen could sleep soundly, in safety,
Knowing that this Marine would stand the watch

Today we are here to say
The watch stands relieved
Relieved by those you have led, guided, and trained.

Master Gunnery Sergeant Vanko, you stand relieved.
We have the watch.

Congratulations on retirement Master Gunnery Sergeant Vanko. We have the Watch.

York County wrestler adds to his Hollywood story; Marine Corps Staff Sergeant John Stefanowicz became an #Olympian!

The #KennardDaleHighSchool grad John Stefanowicz ran the toughest road to become an Olympian. He wrestled in High School, but never qualified for a state tournament. After graduation, he chose to join the #UnitedStatesMarineCorps because college wasn't the option for him.

Though just the No. 4 seed at the #USOlympicTeamTrials, SSgt Stefanowicz took down each favored opponent. SSgt Stefanowicz, 29, won three matches before defeating #JoeRau, twice.

SSgt Stefanowicz cemented his spot on #TeamUSA in the Greco-Roman style in the #192poundweightclass. He will wrestle in the #TokyoOlympics this summer!

SSgt Stefanowicz's unlikely ascent to Olympian actually did begin around the farm fields of #SouthernYorkCounty, leading his younger brother in workouts growing up.

He joined the #Marines out of high school, put on 70 pounds and got back into wrestling. He succeeded, in part, because of a fierce willpower.

SSgt Stefanowicz had to move up a weight class to accomadate Olympic Weight Classes, and stunned onlookers, first by beating the No. 2 seed #AlanVera, then was awarded victory over the No. 3. He finished by upsetting Rau, the 2016 Olympic Trials champ.

SSgt Stefanowicz is an #IntelMarine and continues studying to complete his college degree and help raise two children.

"Just adversity and having enough grit to get through it," Stefanowicz said in the USA Wrestling interview. "I’ve been dealing with it since I was a kid. It's one of the things, the more something breaks down, as long as you keep getting back up, it's going to make you stronger."

He'll be the #FirstMarine team member to wrestle in the Olympics since 1992.

"It feels so much bigger, seeing my team and my family and wife and brothers and sisters in the stands. I never thought I'd be here. I never thought in a million years I thought I’d wake up and say, 'I'm an Olympian... At this point, I feel unstoppable."

Congratulations Staff Sergeant! #TheFewTheProud!

Thank you for showing us the importance of remembering how our warriors go wherever we send them - they don’t decide, we do. We are a team. Less than 1% serve, 99% of us need to lift them up and help them heal from whatever our government asked of them. I’m sorry for your emotional and physical sacrifices. I’m grateful for the lessons you taught us. Let us never forget how to support each other. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 Repost from @team_neverquit: National Vietnam War Veterans Day is observed every year on March 29th.

On this day in Navy and Marine Corps History:
On March 8th, 1965, Marines land in DaNang. The 9th Marine Expeditionary Brigade (MEB) landed at DaNang, Republic of Vietnam as the first U.S. ground combat troops to be committed to that conflict. The 3,500 Marines arrived both across the beach with Battalion Landing Team 3/9, and at DaNang Airfiled with Battalion Landing Team 1/3. The 3,500 Marines were deployed to secure the U.S. airbase, freeing South Vietnamese troops up for combat.

Do you know who the Montford Point Marines are?
Have you ever heard of the Montford Point Marines?
Well, the Montford Point Marines were the FIRST African American Marines. In 1941, as the United States was preparing to enter World War II, Executive Order 8802 was signed. This new order prohibited racial discrimination in the defense industry or in government, allowing all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces to be open to African Americans.
Lieutenant Colonel Joseph Carpenter, who trained at Montford Point in 1943, recalled that black recruits were relieved when black drill instructors began to replace the white ones, hopeful they wouldn’t be as tough. The opposite turned out to be true. “They, the blacks, were determined to make us succeed and to be real Marines. And that was their main goal, was to be sure that we were gonna be better than everybody else.”
Joining the Marine Corps is no easy task. Any Marine will tell you that. Even amongst your peers, when you think you can get comfortable, you will get pushed past your limits and pushed to succeed, because complacency kills.
We don't allow mediocracy. We take what we are given and mold you into a better version of yourself, a version that strives for success and to be the best version of yourself. If you want to make history and become on of the most elite, if you think you have what it takes, Contact your local Marine Corps Recruiter.
