Marine Corps History
 
  Description: 



A portion of all proceeds will support Marine Corps charities.

In spite of the relatively small number of people passing through its ranks, the Marine Corps produce a disproportionate share of this country's leaders. It is because Marines are different from the rest of the population. They have a different mindset and have been taught to handle problems in a different manner. They are taught to find a way to solve the problem, regardless of extenuating circumstances. They do not make excuses or try to determine why it can't be done. Marine Corps training instills the self-control, discipline, self-assurance, and leadership skills that lead to high achievement later in life. Above & Beyond, Former Marines Conquer the Civilian World profiles 88 former Marines who took that winning attitude and applied it to the civilian sector. This book introduces a mix of former Marines who are very successful in the civilian fields they have chosen; some of these former Marines you already know, and many you don't know. You will meet reservists, "one-termers" and "lifers", as well as a former Marine Commandant who is very successful in the private sector. You will find out a little bit about each person profiled, but as you read the stories collectively, you will see a camaraderie of many races, ages, and personalities that make up the U.S. Marine Corps. Above & Beyond is a must for former, current and future Marines and their families.
