Cpl. Luke Frank, an administrative clerk with Regimental Combat Team 7, works in the personnel section and is responsible for tracking Marines and ensuring they receive the correct pay and awards. Frank, a 20-year-old native of Chinle, Ariz., spends his free time at his home station, Camp Pendleton, Calif., volunteering in the local community by helping feed the homeless or reading to local children. Frank said he joined the Marine Corps for the challenge, but he appreciates the responsibility of being in the military.
“The highlight of my career has been being held accountable for my actions— past and present,” Frank said. “There are not many organizations in our country that hold individuals accountable like the Marines. It has helped me to grow as a Marine and a leader.”
