I just loved getting those crossed rifles under the "mosquito wings". And picking up Sergeant? Sergeants were GODS in the flesh when I was a young LCpl. You did not question them, back talk them or make sounds they did not like (I found out the last one and earned 3000 8-count body builders!!!). I had a spring in my step and looked in awe at my collars for a week after getting those three stripes.
When I was in TBS going through Warrant Officer Basic, they asked us what was the most challenging thing we would encounter i the Fleet. To the man we answered Lance Corporals. This suprised them. We explained; who does all the admin key punching? Who does the maintenance on the trucks? Who runs the radars? Who does EVEYTHING in the Marine Corps? Lance Corporals!! The true power in the Corps lies with thosefine young men and women that Officers and SNCO's get the pleasure of leading. It is an HONOR to lead Marines and I return all salutes with pride. Even those offered by the young Sailors on the mighty warship I currently serve on.
There is a quote, can't remember who said it "When your leading, ensure you stop now and then to make sure someone is following."
