Marine Corps Recruiting Station Phoenix Marines form for the relief of Sgt. Maj. Wallace M. Mains and appointment of Sgt. Maj. Jerry Gomes during a ceremony at Luke Air Force Base, Ariz., July 24, 2013. Mains’ service in the Marine Corps has spanned 25 years, and he will formally retire later this year. “As a prior drill instructor, I had a little bit of a skewed opinion of recruiters,” said Mains, a New Orleans native. “But being out here the past couple years made me truly realize how difficult this duty is.” (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Sgt.
