Corporal Brent Graham, a field radio operator with Regimental Combat Team 7 and 21-year-old native of Clinton, Ind., has gained experience and even seen combat during his deployment to Helmand province, Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. "Cpl. Graham is an extremely hard worker. That's why he was selected to go on RCT-7's last mission," said Staff Sgt. Cedric Swan, the radio chief with RCT-7. "And once there, Graham rose to the challenge and represented himself and 7th Marines in an exceptional manner in the midst of eminent danger." - Corporal Brent Graham, a field radio operator with Regimental Combat Team 7 and 21-year-old native of Clinton, Ind., has gained experience and even seen combat during his deployment to Helmand province, Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Corporal Sasha Savage, a supply noncommissioned officer with Regimental Combat Team 7, has helped fill an important role by maintaining complete, accurate records of supply purchases made by subordinate units. Savage, a 23-year-old native of Beaverton, Mich., originally deployed with Marine Air Ground Task Force Support Company, Reset and Reconstitution Operational Group, but was moved to RCT-7 when a shortfall was identified by the RCT. "When she came in, she was rather quiet about things," said 1st Lt. Douglas Turner, the supply officer with RCT-7 and a 26-year-old native of Columbus, Ohio. "Her path of leadership now is leading her peers, leading by example. She's actually trying to be the best NCO in the shop, and Marines are following her because of it." - Corporal Sasha Savage, a supply noncommissioned officer with Regimental Combat Team 7, has helped fill an important role by maintaining complete, accurate records of supply purchases made by subordinate units.

Bonnie Amos, wife of Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. James F. Amos, talks about her recent trip to visit Marines overseas during a military spouses’ conference here Jan. 31, 2013. Mrs. Amos spent the holidays in December 2012 traveling to different posts throughout Afghanistan in an effort to experience deployment life with Marines and convey it in her own words to military spouses on the home front.

Amos, and Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps Micheal P. Barrett. - Bonnie Amos, wife of Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. James F.
