    Major Steven M. Ford, commanding officer of Marine Corps Recruiting Station Phoenix, presents Sgt. Maj. Wallace M. Mains, outgoing R.S. Phoenix sergeant major, with a ceremonial paddle, concluding Mains’ relief and appointment ceremony at Luke Air Force Base, Ariz., July 24, 2013. “Sergeant major [Mains] and I both have backgrounds with Boat Company, which is where this paddle tradition all started,” said Ford. “We hand it out on recruiting duty because occasionally you find yourself up creek and have to paddle yourself out of it.” (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Sgt.
