I still wish that we could have helped him find it in himself to have the [b]COURAGE[/B] to [b]HONOR[/B] the [b]COMMITMENT[/b] he willfully entered into. There is a value system expected of our Men and Women in the armed forces. On the face of the "Core Values" card each Marine is expected to carry with them, always, is the following:
HONOR INTEGRITY, RESPONSIBILITY, ACCOUNTABILITY COURAGE DO THE RIGHT THING, IN THE RIGHT WAY, FOR THE RIGHT REASONS COMMITMENT DEVOTION TO THE CORPS AND MY FELLOW MARINES

and on the rear:
Marines... 1. OBEY THE LAW 2. LEAD BY EXAMPLE 3. RESPECT THEMSELVES AND OTHERS 4. MAINTAIN A HIGH STANDARD OF INTEGRITY 5. SUPPORT AND UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION 6. UPHOLD SPECIAL TRUST AND CONFIDENCE 7. PLACE FAITH AND HONOR ABOVE ALL ELSE 8. HONOR FELLOW MARINES, THE CORPS, COUNTRY, AND FAMILY

Up until very recently, I've always felt that this card was something that the cub scouts should be handing out, but now, I realize what void it was intended to fill.
