What Does Honor, Courage, and Commitment mean to you?
I live my values. In the Marines I wasn't afraid to get into good trouble:
I reported sexual misconduct, race and gender misconduct, and abuse of power in the Marines before it was a trend.
I suffered for doing right; I was stripped of rank and hazed by my superiors (I also reported this), but I persevered.
I chose to fight even when it meant personal and financial harm would come, even when I was the only Marine to denounce and expose the wrongdoing.
And I have the receipts to prove it.
Thank You for Your Service!
