The date of Morales’ promotion carried extra significance, falling on the same date he joined the Marine Corps nine years earlier in 2005. “It hasn’t fully set in,” said Morales, a native of Beaumont, Texas. “I’m excited for the opportunity to lead young Marines.” Morales, a motor transportation mechanic by trade in the Marine Corps, voluntarily came on recruiting duty hoping to provide the same opportunities to young men and women that the Marine Corps has afforded him.
