Ever wonder what holidays are like for active duty Marines?

While Marines may be forward deployed throughout the globe during the holiday season, did you know that many Marines get to spend the holidays with their families just like everyone else?

Marines that are not deployed typically get a few days off to celebrate Christmas and New Years as well as have the opportunity to take leave if they wish to celebrate the holidays longer.

While you might already be aware that recruits practice close order drill on a daily basis at boot camp, did you know it’s purpose?

The object of close order drill is to teach Marines by exercise to
obey orders and to do so immediately in the correct way. Close order drill is one foundation of discipline and esprit de corps.
Additionally, it is still one of the finest methods for developing confidence and troop leading abilities in our subordinate leaders.

Captain Ryan Harper, RS Albuquerque’s Reserve Support Officer, has gotten to experience the best of both worlds in the Marine Corps when it comes to component: active duty and reserves. Although he served as an active duty MV-22 Osprey pilot for 10 years, Harper has recently become a reservist.

“I transitioned from active duty to the reserves primarily for family reasons. I got married and my wife had the opportunity to work in her home town and I wanted to be able to support her and her career so I switched to working as a reservist here in Albuquerque,” said Harper.

Since switching to the reserves Harper has become a commercial pilot flying small private jets. His time on both active duty orders and in the reserves has made him extremely knowledgeable regarding the aviation world from both sides.

“What’s great is that I have experience in aviation in both the military and civilian sector. If someone is interested in the Marine Corps whether that be as a crew chief, aviation maintainer or a pilot I have a better understanding of what that would look like on active duty or in the reserves as well as the opportunities those fields present as a civilian,” explained Harper.

Harper went onto remark that the Marine Corps is, “…not just in the business of winning our nation’s battles but we’re also in the business of creating better Americans.”
