You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt
A great program -- Marines for life. We help guys getting out (retiring or just a few years. Enlisted or Officer). The idea is they need some help to find that "next" job.
You "post" your profile. Maybe your profile indicates you can hire some folks and maybe it indicates you will try to help them find a job. No obligations. Just Marines helping Marines. Isn't that what we are?
