Reflecting responsibility: Texas Marine earns rocker, rank of staff sergeant

[Right] Sergeant Maj. Jerry Gomes, sergeant major of Marine Corps Recruiting Station Phoenix, reads a promotion warrant for newly promoted [Left] Staff Sgt. Ruben Morales, a recruiter for R.S. Phoenix, during a ceremony at the recruiting station’s headquarters in Phoenix, Jan. 10, 2014. 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.
