    Gunnery Sgt. Timothy C. Tardif, staff noncommissioned officer of Scout Sniper School, School of Infantry West-Detachment Hawaii, and a 32-year-old native of Denver, speaks to Marines of Corporals Course at Dewey Square on Marine Corps Base Hawaii, Feb. 25, 2013. The Marines had just completed a four hour-long case study, or training exercise, based off of true experiences Tardif faced as a corporal in combat during Operation Iraqi Freedom, April 12, 2003. Tardif received shrapnel wounds while assaulting the enemy compound and refused medical attention in order to keep fighting alongside his platoon. Thirteen months later he was awarded the Silver Star for the actions he displayed on that day. Tardif explained to the Marines the Marine Corps is what they make of it, and the effectiveness of their leadership will depend of the bond they build with their Marines.
