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.

For many of the enlistees it was their first encounter with an MRE, but will not be their last in becoming a Marine. Arroyo, a Phoenix native, said when it comes to making the most out of a little with an MRE, he considers himself a chef. More than 400 enlistees and their family and friends from across the state of Arizona participated in the daylong event, which provided all an opportunity to operate as a team, develop motivation, experience team competition and maximize parental involvement. The enlistees are currently part of the delayed entry program and are awaiting their dates to ship to boot camp. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl. Tyler J. Bolken)
