The Regimental Combat Team 6 Marine of the day is Pfc. Miouly Dessources, 28, food service specialist, Regimental Combat Team 6, from Brooklyn, N.Y. He is married and has a baby girl due to be born in March. Dessources joined the Marine Corps in December 2010. He decided to join the Marines to provide a better future for his family and because he likes to help people. “I hit a roadblock in life, and I needed help to pay for school,” Dessources said. “The Marine Corps was a perfect fit with my goals and ideals.” Dessources wants to make the most of his Marine Corps enlistment by becoming a sergeant before he gets out. He only plans on serving one enlistment so he feels he needs to do as much as possible in that time. Dessources plans to earn his associate’s degree before he gets out and eventually wants to receive his master’s degree in psychology. “While I’m in the Marines, I want to show the kind of character I have. I want to be the best,” Dessources said. “Afterward, I want to become a school counselor or psychologist.” Rank and school are not the only dreams Dessources has. He wants a big family with four or five kids. He also wants to live in a big house where he can have a huge garden and grow his own food, like apples, oranges and vegetables. “I want a big family. I was raised as an only child, so I’m envious of big families, to be able to spend time with them,” Dessources said. “I want a simple life, where I can raise my own food.” In his free time, Dessources likes to spend time with his wife. A self-confessed homebody, he doesn’t like to go out. He likes to cook Haitian food and read fantasy books, his favorite auther is George Martin and the “Song of Fire and Ice” series. “Kicking back at home with my wife is my idea of fun. While deployed, I like to read fantasy books; it’s the only type I read,” Dessources said. “I also think I have a hidden talent for cooking.” “Millie, I can’t wait to come home and raise our daughter together,” Dessources said.
