Truth be told, they, the team, are the reasons why I wear these medals, and I am honored to have received them on their behalf. Until I wore the medals, I never understood their true significance. Our nation’s medals represent more than the actions of any team on a single day. They embody the principles upon which our government was founded and are a tangible depiction of our military’s core values: honor, courage, and commitment. The fact that the nation’s top three medals for valor require a multitude of evidence only demonstrates the reverence our country has for them.
They thrived on being different and doing something unique and dangerous. In a service that trumpets “Every marine is a rifleman” and then practices what it preaches, it’s easy to blend in with the rest of the Corps. Recon was a means to break free, and that’s why they volunteered for the job. They were destined for extremely dangerous missions, sneaking among a sea of enemy, hiding in miserable conditions and gathering intelligence, and doing it with little acknowledgment that the organization even existed.
With the help of many mentors and the encouragement of my brother marines, along the way, I went from using my uniform to keep me afloat and a dog-paddling breaststroke in boot camp to graduating Navy SCUBA School in a year’s time. Now, I wasn’t sure if tackling my fear of the water would be the type of bravery needed under fire, but I felt I met the captain’s definition of a Recon Marine, and it gave me a feeling that I was at the right place. The captain then walked over to Erik, who popped tall and stood rock still.
