"Every Marine understands that in war he will be asked, and expected, to do the impossible. He will do his duty while ignoring physical hardship, personal danger and sacrifice, and the certainty of his reward. He will do this simply because it is expected of a Marine - his Corps and his country expect nothing less. And he will always honor the reputation established by the great Marines who preceded him... Semper Fidelis!"
