Be Grateful You’re an American!
Mark’s latest post, From Training to Business, tells of his accomplishments in the Marine Corps’ “Ultimate Tough Guy” Training.
Today I graduated from the Marine Corps Green Belt Martial Arts Instructor course. As I eluded to in an earlier post, this was one of the most demanding training stints I have encountered in the Corps – if not the most demanding.
God has graced me with the abilities to not only survive such training – but also with the physical, mental, and character discipline necessary to excel in such a training environment.
Today I graduated at the top of my class – Honor Graduate.
Aside from Honor Graduate, our Instructor Trainer has recommended me for the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal for not only my academic accomplishment, but also my leadership and professional qualities as a Marine and Martial Arts Instructor.
But enough self promotion…
Yes, Mark is now qualified to tell older, whiny Marines to “Suck it up…Sir!” and pushish them mercilessly for days! Not that I’m sayin’ Taco’s a whiner, but a few of his buds dropped out pretty quickly.
I know it’s not in Mark’s nature to be boastfull, but I’m glad he decided to share his recent honors with his fans.

Tribes. "I am not a wolf. I have never harmed a person in my life. But I am not a sheep, either. I know these forces are out there, and wishing it were not so will not only not make them go away – it will rob me of my chance to kick their ass when they show up."
