Marines are known for being able to control their emotions. This isn't something natural to humans but a learned skill honed by necessity. Let go of what you can't control and hold on to what you can change- yourself. Who do you want to be? Monday is the start of a new week. You can be that much closer to your dreams if stop doubting yourself and worrying about the uncontrollable.

For the first #warriorwednesday of the year I thought it appropriate to share the story of the the man, the #myth, the #legend John Basilone For extraordinary heroism and conspicuous gallantry in action against enemy Japanese forces, above and beyond the call of duty, while serving with the 1st Battalion, 7th Marines, 1st Marine Division in the Lunga Area, Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands, on 24 and 25 October 1942. While the enemy was hammering at the Marines' defensive positions, Sgt. BASILONE, in charge of 2 sections of heavy machine guns, fought valiantly to check the savage and determined assault. In a fierce frontal attack with the Japanese blasting his guns with grenades and mortar fire, one of Sgt. BASILONE'S sections, with its gun crews, was put out of action, leaving only 2 men able to carry on. Moving an extra gun into position, he placed it in action, then, under continual fire, repaired another and personally manned it, gallantly holding his line until replacements arrived. A little later, with ammunition critically low and the supply lines cut off, Sgt. BASILONE, at great risk of his life and in the face of continued enemy attack, battled his way through hostile lines with urgently needed shells for his gunners, thereby contributing in large measure to the virtual annihilation of a Japanese regiment. His great personal valor and courageous initiative were in keeping with the highest traditions of the U.S. Naval Service. #marines #officer #marineofficer #battkeswon #detroit #annarbor #unitedstatesmarinecorps #officerprograms #challenge #leadership #travel #adventure #education #fitness #selfdisciplne #law #marinelaw #oorah #motivation

For this #warriorwednesday we remember Lt. John P. Bobo who earned the Medal of Honor for his actions in Vietnam. At #ocs candidates march to a chow hall named after him every day. One day, some of those candidates will earn the coveted the Eagle Globe and Anchor and become #warriors ....... For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty as Weapons Platoon Commander, Company I, Third Battalion, Ninth Marines, Third Marine Division, in Quang Tri Province, Republic of Vietnam, on 30 March 1967. Company I was establishing night ambush sites when the command group was attacked by a reinforced North Vietnamese company supported by heavy automatic weapons and mortar fire. Lieutenant BOBO immediately organized a hasty defense and moved from position to position encouraging the outnumbered Marines despite the murderous enemy fire. Recovering a rocket launcher from among the friendly casualties, he organized a new launcher team and directed its fire into the enemy machine gun position. When an exploding enemy mortar round severed Lieutenant Bobo's right leg below the knee, he refused to be evacuated and insisted upon being placed in a firing position to cover the movement of the command group to a better location. With a web belt around his leg serving as tourniquet and with his leg jammed into the dirt to curtail the bleeding, he remained in this position and delivered devastating fire into the ranks of the enemy attempting to overrun the Marines. Lieutenant BOBO was mortally wounded while firing his weapon into the main point of the enemy attack but his valiant spirit inspired his men to heroic efforts, and his tenacious stand enabled the command group to gain a protective position where it repulsed the enemy onslaught. Lieutenant BOBO's superb leadership, dauntless courage, and bold initiative reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service. He gallantly gave his life for his country. #Marines #Officer #MarineOfficer #BattlesWon #Detroit #AnnArbor #UnitedStatesMarineCorps #OfficerPrograms # Challenge #Leadership

Even while on leave enjoying the holidays make sure you are getting your #fitnessfriday on and continue to physically train! #ocs is a very physically challenging school and as the great coach #vincelombardi once said "The will to win is not nearly so important as the will to prepare to win."...No matter what you do to get in shape, make sure you get out there! Today’s workout comes courtesy of @wsc_mob at wolverine strength and conditioning home of #skunkbearcrossfit

For our first #tbt we share the story of Capt. Vanvianen. Capt Vanvianen first enlisted into the Marine Corps as an ammunition technician and officer selection assistant to Capt. Pinter recruiting and processing future officers for @marineofficerannarbor. He performed so well he was accepted into the highly competitive Marine Enlisted Commissioning Education Program where he was ordered to attend #ocs. Commissioning as second lieutenant he became a logistics officer and continued to preform exceptionally. He was by name requested to return to @marineofficerannarbor to serve as the Officer Selection Officer. We all start somewhere...it takes hard work and dedication to earn the title #marine Capt. Vanvianen was once a recruit, once a candidate and now he leads Marines. If you are up to the challenge of leading the Nations’ finest, you start as a candidate....pictured here is Candidate Vanvianen running a 16:30 3 Mile #pft !! #Marines #Officer #MarineOfficer #BattlesWon #Detroit #AnnArbor #UnitedStatesMarineCorps #OfficerPrograms # Challenge #Leadership #Travel #Adventure #Education #Fitness #Selfdiscpline #OfficerSelectionOffice #OORAH #Motivation #Painisweaknessleavingthebody #Marinerecruiting #Marines.com #1800Marines #OfficerCandidateSchool #OCS #TheBasicSchool #TBS #1775

To inaugurate our first #warriorwednesday we share the citation of Corporal John F. Mackie the first United States Marine to earn the nation’s highest military award the Medal of Honor. ........................
On board the U.S.S. Galena in the attack on Fort Darling at Drewry's Bluff, James River, on 15 May 1862. As enemy shellfire raked the deck of his ship, Corporal Mackie fearlessly maintained his musket fire against the rifle pits along the shore and, when ordered to fill vacancies at guns caused by men wounded and killed in action, manned the weapon with skill and courage..................................... #Marines #Officer #MarineOfficer #BattlesWon #Detroit #AnnArbor #UnitedStatesMarineCorps #OfficerPrograms # Challenge #Leadership #Travel #Adventure #Education #Fitness #Selfdiscpline #OfficerSelectionOffice #OORAH #Motivation #Painisweaknessleavingthebody #Marinerecruiting #Marines.com #1800Marines #OfficerCandidateSchool #OCS #TheBasicSchool #TBS #1775
