    Hello, my name is Felice Steinberg, my maiden name is "Feugill"...you posted an article about me a while back. It was about how I was going to be an Officer in the Marine Corps after I finished college. Well, plans changed a bit since then, but I figured I would say hello and tell you how things turned out since you posted that article about me. I'm not an officer, but I am a Marine. I attened OCS on May 17, 2008. I graduated 6 weeks later within the top 5 Candidates out of my whole company, I did well. I will never forget my two instructors from OCS, Gysgt Taipe and Gysgt Scifo. I thought it was kind of weird how enlisted Marines teach Candidates how to be good Officers. However, I realized then and there at Officer Candidate School, that the officer route wasn't for me. My father was enlisted, and by going to OCS I realized that the enlisted side is where I belong. I quit college at Kent and gave up my gymnastics career of 16 years to be one of the few. I attened MCRD Parris Island on October 27, 2008. Just like my Dad, I too enjoyed bootcamp. I graduated bootcamp on January 23, 2009 as the Oscar Company Honor Grad. My Senior Drill Instructor was SSgt Shaw, an amazing Marine and women that I still keep in contact with today. She has forever made a lasting impression on me. My other Drill Instructor that will never be forgotten is Sgt Foster. She was the smallest D.I. I had ever seen but that didn't hold her back from anything. Although she was small, she was probably the most intimidating D.I. to me. I'm small as well, so she showed me that even though she's small and a female in the Corps, there isn't anything that she can't do. She definately inspired me and I still look up to her today as I did everyday during recruit training. I'm now a Lcpl in the fleet about to pick up Cpl in a few months. I'm an armorer stationed at MCAS New River. My unit is VMM 266, however I am TAD to Mag 29 until January. My unit is scheduled to deploy to Afghanistan sometime mid-2010. My husband is also a Marine. We've been together since before I joined the Corps. We got married not too long after he got back from Iraq this year. He is with 2nd Recon Bt. here at Camp Lejeune (the same MOS and duty station that my Dad was at when he was in). Although I do miss gymnastics every single day, I do not regret giving it up to be apart of the finest and most elite military organization there is. I'm also continuing my college education while in the Corps. Well, thanks again for posting my article. Semper Fi!
