R.S. Phoenix appoints new Sgt. Maj. Gomes, bids farewell to Sgt. Maj. Mains

Sergeant Maj. Wallace M. Mains, outgoing sergeant major of Marine Corps Recruiting Station Phoenix, speaks to the Marines of R.S. Phoenix for a final time, concluding the relief and appointment ceremony between him and Sgt. Maj. Jerry Gomes, during a ceremony at Luke Air Force Base, Ariz., July 24, 2013. “As a prior drill instructor, I had a little bit of a skewed opinion of recruiters,” said Mains, a New Orleans native. “But being out here the past couple years made me truly realize how difficult this duty is.” (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Sgt.
