3 Marine Perspectives

Three 0311's are digging fighting holes, and are asked by their Company Commander what they are doing:

First one: I am digging a hole.

Second one: I am digging a position that is part of the company defense and will help me fight against the enemy.

Third one: I am doing my part to ensure the Marines in my unit have the best chance to survive.

All three are correct. But fortunate are those who have a top level goal so consequential to the world that imbues everything they do.

The higher purpose and meaning in peoples lives always ties back to people: "my children, my clients, my students, my Marines." Or it could be more abstract, "this country, this Service, this society."
