Quotes

...He is also the author of the "Guardian of the Republic; An American Ronin's Journey to Faith, Family and Freedom."
"We’ve got three things that we are going to focus on. Readiness, readiness, and readiness," said Beydler. "What I mean by that is I want our Marines and sailors to be prepared and ready to deploy at a moment’s notice and ready to employ their skills when they get to a point of friction. So the Marines will be ready to meet any calling of our nation."
"This is a great day," said Banta. "It was really tough for me to stand up there and let go of those colors. I’m equally honored and humbled to have had the privilege of serving with these Marines and sailors, and now passing on their legacy of excellence to Brig. Gen. Chiarotti."
"Many of the jobs in a support squadron are hands on," said Martinez. "You can't just practice deployments from the back yard of the squadron, so having a place to set up and do our jobs makes Marines feel more confident in what they can do."
