opportunity to be a part of a Marine Corps commercial. To me it’s something
that’ll be a part of history.”

of Marines who are interested in participating in advertising projects.
MCRC believes that active-duty Marines are the best
ambassadors for the Marine Corps and this opportunity also gives the Marine
Corps the ability to showcase the talent serving.
“Every Marine I’ve come in contact with, whether it’s a
junior Marine or a senior, there is always a learning opportunity,” said
Singleton. “They teach you what to do or what not to do through their
Commands are encouraged to find their most eligible Marines
and encourage them to apply.
“The Marine Corps is as they tell you ‘the best of the
best,’” said Singleton. “We are out there doing things for the community
whether it is mentoring or community service and then we try to be the best at
everything we do.”
