The Eagle, Globe, and Anchor is so much more than the Marine Corps insignia. It’s a symbol of the honor, courage, and commitment of every Marine who has ever fought and won our Nation’s battles.

Marines engage and defeat the enemy without hesitation, no matter the scenario.
The Tactical Recovery of Aircraft and Personnel (TRAP) exercise reinforces Marines' lethality by training them to confidently enter potentially combative areas, collect equipment, recover personnel and win our Nation's battles. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

More than 50 years after he demonstrated the tenacity to fight and win for our Nation, Major Edward F. Wright (ret.) was awarded the Silver Star, the third-highest award for valor.
In August 1967, then-Lieutenant Wright expeditiously organized his platoon and led them on a rapid two-mile combat march to the ambush site. Recognizing contact with the enemy was imminent, he tactically deployed his force into concealed positions moments before the enemy unleashed a ferocious attack with automatic weapons, rockets and grenades. As the battle came to close combat, he rallied his men and ordered them to fix bayonets and continued his aggressive assault.

The fight may come in different forms, but Marines are always ready to take on the challenge. Training for whatever the battle may bring, Marines with Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting (ARFF) use a hand line to extinguish a fuel fire.
This training is held monthly to provide ARFF Marines with training scenarios to enhance their readiness to respond to any potential hazards or emergencies on the flight line.
No matter the battle, Marines always carry with them the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor. Watch our latest IGTV video to see why wherever there are Marines there are battles won.
