U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Caden Phillips, a combat videographer, renders a salute to Capt. Michael Curtis, a Communications Strategy Operations officer both with Security Battalion, during his promotion to corporal on Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia, Oct. 7, 2022. Promotion ceremonies are a significant achievement in a service member’s career and are a testament to their commitment, mastery of duties and skills, and leadership capabilities. Marines take on greater responsibilities as Non-Commissioned Officers after showing exemplary leadership skills. Phillips requested to be promoted to corporal in the Potomac River, following the Marine Corps' traditions. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. Joaquin Dela Torre)
