The weather was sunny, but cold, yesterday in Greensboro. Marines spent the day recruiting on UNCG's campus behind the student union building. The above photo was taken after 4pm, when the Marines started dismantling their tents and took a little time to burn off some energy. In the above photo, you see one Marine doing pull ups. College campuses are such a great place to learn about what college students are doing. Yesterday, many college students were considering signing on the dotted lines to become a marine.
The Marines are having a big celebration at Camp Lejeune and Jacksonville, NC in honor of their 75 anniversary. * Over the years, they've acquired a catchy phone number: 1-800-MARINES. Pretty darn memorable. When you see the guys working together to dismantle a recruitment station, you can see why they are so effective. Teamwork
