A continuation of a #legacy has begun once again! Mr. Manning has a date which he will step on the very same #yellowfootprints his grandfather did many years ago. Stay motivated and Semper Fi!

Can't believe it's allready here. Seems like just yesterday I approached my recruiter in the hallway. I'm am so thankful for all of the love and support from my friends and family. Can't wait to earn that E.G.A and come back a new man. #thejourneybegins #ega #USMC #yellowfootprints #parrisisland

Recruits of Mike Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, and Oscar Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, arrived on Parris Island for Marine Corps recruit training May 1, 2017. Recruits spend 13 weeks dedicating themselves to embracing the Corps’ core values of honor, courage and commitment on the way to earning the title Marine. Both companies are scheduled to graduate July 28, 2017. (Video by Lance Cpl. Carlin Warren and Lance Cpl. Joseph Jacob) #receiving #yellowfootprints

10 years... Feet at a 45, thumbs along your trouser seams! Face forward, ears open, eyeballs click! Aye Aye Sir!
It's funny what fate has in store for us sometimes. Things you felt so sure about that turn out much differently than you ever could have imagined. Life is full of dreams, but in reality is nothing more than a combination of choices and opinions. Choices based on opinions, and opinions based on choices. It's all the same in the end, you live with those choices as with the results of them.
These footprints changed my life forever, albeit not nearly in the way I had expected. They set me on a path that has molded me into the person I am today. They taught me how to work as one and what leadership really meant. I learned a great deal about myself, my true self... a self... that wasn't truly me. I don't know if I will ever reconcile the way I conducted myself but there is no choice but to continue forward. I will never know what could have been, where I would be, who I would know, what I would have done, would I be alive... All I know is I got a second chance to be a Father to my son and to be with the one I love most, and I wouldn't trade that for anything. Many thanks to all the men and women out there that fulfilled their commitments, and many apologies for me not fulfilling mine. Goodnight Chesty, wherever your are... #yellowfootprints #USMC #MarineCorps #SemperFi

God bless to those, service men and woman who paid the ultimate sacrifice. Rememberthose on this #memorialday2017 #45degreeangle #yellowfootprints #usmc #unitedstatesmarinecorps..

Thirty-four years ago today I boarded an AMTRAK train in Richmond, VA. bound for Charleston, S.C. From there, I was put on a bus with a bunch of other wide-eyed young men, each of us wondering what in the world we'd gotten ourselves into. Late that evening, I stepped off the bus and onto the legendary "yellow footprints" at Parris Island, and my life-long journey as a United States Marine began. To borrow a quote from Jerry Garcia, "What a long, strange trip it's been," but I wouldn't change any of it for the world. Semper Fi!

Sweet 16... years in the United States Marine Corps. #SemperFidelis #YellowFootprints

Greatest achievement of my life, I went from trouble kid making bad decisions, to developing discipline and a greater love for mankind. A sense of belonging, and a brotherhood is what I gained. I wouldn't change it for anything and still will be here for those in need.
