Being trusted to tell someone else’s story is an indescribable feeling. Being able to document and capture the transformation of strangers as they battle physically, mentally, and emotionally to earn the coveted title of ‘Marine’ is an honor. These photos are a testament to young Americans serving their country.

-Sgt Caitlin Brink


As America’s expeditionary force in readiness since 1775, the Marines are forward deployed to win our nation’s battles swiftly and aggressively in times of crisis. The kind of battles Marines fight range from traditional warfare to humanitarian and disaster relief missions. To do that, we make Marines who win our nation’s battles and return as quality citizens.
