Jessica Morales pins staff sergeant chevrons on her husband, Staff Sgt. Ruben Morales, during a promotion ceremony at the Marine Corps Recruiting Station Phoenix headquarters in Phoenix, Jan. 10, 2014. Staff Sgt. Morales, a recruiter for R.S. Phoenix and native of Beaumont, Texas, said he wouldn’t be where he is as a Marine without the support of his wife. “She’s been with me since the beginning, back when I was a Pfc. [Private First Class],” said Morales. 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.
