In my term as Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps, it is important to ensure the well-being of our enlisted force in keeping with the Commandant's Planning Guidance. To this effort, I offer advice on Marine Corps education as it relates to curriculum development and execution of enlisted Professional Military Education, quality of life, and overall readiness of Marines and families. The mission is to train, educate, and manage talent within the Corps to be the most ready when the nation is least ready.
