Molly Marine Presentation N Co. 13 Nov 2013

The city of New Orleans dedicated the first United States monument of a woman in service uniform: “Molly Marine” on 10Nov, 1943.  A local recruiter commissioned the statue to help recruit women during World War II. For female Marines around the world, Molly has come to represent the countless significant contributions women have made to the Corps. She proudly stands for endurance, the book she holds records our history, the binoculars allow her to see into the future and she looks up steadfast facing all that comes her way. Molly has become a symbol of Esprit de Corps for all women Marines. Before graduation from boot camp, the recruits are asked to name one fellow recruit within their platoon who best exemplifies being a Marine. Here, we celebrate two of our newest sisters.

A Molly Marine is one who rises from adversity and becomes a mentor and leader to her peers through the challenges that may lie ahead. A Molly Marine is one who demonstrates an unconditional dedication and unselfishness for the success of the team.

The road to becoming a United States Marine has not been easy. Throughout my life I have experienced many hardships. Those hardships have made me confident and have taught me that although times may be tough, if you maintain a positive attitude, work hard and show determination to achieve your goals you can achieve anything. I know that I have not always been perfect and have made mistakes in the past but I have learned to accept and learn from them in order to become a better person.

Throughout this difficult training, I have learned about myself and how everything I do or say can either have a negative or positive effect on those around me. A Molly Marine is one that pushes those around her behind what she thinks she can do, and never gives up on herself or her sisters.

Through my road to become a United States Marine, I have used my experiences to show my peers that instead of thinking about my mistakes, to use those mistakes and take advantage of this second chance to become a better person. I have been privileged enough to serve as a mentor to my peers and motivate them through this challenging time.

To be a Molly Marine is to be a role model, continuously take care of my peers and uphold the highest standards that were taught and instilled in me at home and here at Recruit Training by my mother and most recently my Drill Instructors.
