I'm a united states marine.

Let me tell you, there is no greater feeling of pride and accomplishment."

As for what drew the friends to join the marines: trenton ness and nathan beechey, marines 22:26 "the challenge definitely.

The uniforms look nice .... more than that, though.

Trenton ness .... just carrying on the best legacy possible."
