NWDC, Norfolk, VA --
NWDC celebrates the United States Marine Corps 247th birthday. The ceremony began with opening remarks from NWDC's Chief of Staff, CAPT David Aamodt followed by a video from General David Berger, Commandant of the Marine Corps and Sergeant Major Troy Black, Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps. The message highlights the Marines’ role as warfighters first and foremost around the world.
“Across the force, we continue to innovate and experiment in preparation for the future fight,” Berger said in the video. “Where we will fight might be uncertain, but we prepare for uncertainty. When called we will fight and we will win, today, tomorrow and in the future. These victories are not won because of our technology or our equipment, but because of all of you, because of everything you do every day to remain the best trained, most professional, most ready force in the world.”
“Why we fight and why we win is unchanged,” Black added. “It is our ethos, our character and our unapologetic resolve to be the most capable and most lethal fighting force in the world.”
