Mr. Jerry L. Cole, Substance Abuse Program Specialist, speaks about his career thus far his 40 years of hard work with the Marine Corps and the Substance Abuse Counciling Program on Camp Pendleton, Calif., April 26, 2017. Throughout his career as a Marine his main focus was his Marines and their welfare, and trying to be the best Marine he could be in order to set the example others would strive to emulate. Early in his career, he built bombs and chemical weapons in the ordnance community; he then spent five years on the drill field advancing from junior drill instructor to a battalion sergeant major at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, San Diego. When he retired from the Marine Corps in 2006 he didn’t take any time off. Instead of putting on the uniform he wore for so many years, he put on a collared shirt and khakis; and instead of the squared away Marines he worked with before, it was with the Marines who have gotten themselves in situations and need guidance and help. “I stepped out of that uniform, but I get to work with CO’s, XO’s, Sergeants Major, and most importantly, the junior Marines,” said Cole. “It’s pretty cool. I get the opportunity to right what I believe are wrongs. I plan to do at least five more years here. I’m retirement eligible here now, but I want to work until I’m 62 as long as I can keep up. I really enjoy what I do. If I get to the point that I don’t enjoy what I do anymore or I don’t see it benefitting anyone, then I’ve surpassed my usefulness. If I get that feeling, then I’ll know it’s time to hang it up and put the retirement papers in." (U. S. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. Betzabeth Y. Galvan)
