MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. – Marines are no strangers to waking up before sunrise to train and stay fit.

In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, Marines and sailors with Combat Logistics Regiment 17, 1st Marine Logistics Group, conducted a regimental run here, March 16.

To get them into the holiday spirit, service members were allow to wear any type of green hat along with the Marine Corps traditional green-on-green physical training uniform. Leaders encouraged their Marines and sailors to go wild with their hat ideas.

After warming up, service members went on a short run, led by the regimental commander and the sergeant major.

“The run was very motivated,” said Sgt. Maj. Robert Ledferd, regimental sergeant major, CLR-17. “It was short but motivating; that was the purpose of it. Marines were sounding off and enjoying the run. That’s how it should be every time.”

Cadences could be heard from the top to the bottom of the hill as they made their route around the 14 Area. Marines and sailors of CLR-17 screamed as loud as they could during the run to make sure that their presence was known.

Ledferd said he was proud of his Marines and sailors in the regiment for finishing strong.

“Sometimes, because of our missions, we don’t get to do this as often as we should,” said Ledferd. “But whenever we get our regiment together, they’re giving 100 percent every time. There’s no better regiment than CLR-17.”
