10 Great US Marines
I am the son of a Marine and was born in Quantico, where a Marine Corps Base known as the Crossroads of the Marine Corps is located. We subsequently lived in Camp Lejeune for some time as well. I currently teach history for various colleges and universities and have, over the past few years, had many students who served in the Marines and other branches of the American (and some in non-American) military in Iraq (both in the 1991 and 2003 conflicts) and Afghanistan. This list is in tribute of my students who have risked their lives for our country and for freedom. This list features ten great Marines, notable for bravery in combat and/or humanitarian efforts outside of, although sometimes related to, their military service.
