9 days and a wake-up before it begins.30 days, 31 states, 2 countries and 10,000 miles promoting mental health and substance use awareness in hopes of raising $30,000 for non-profit mental health and substance use organizations that support underserved communities, which includes our friends and families in uniform. 1st stop Marine Corps Base Quantico, Q-town and The Basic School. The birthplace of all Marine Corps Officers. It is for officers what Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island is for enlisted Marines. I’ve been to both… Maybe I will stop by PI on the way home. Yeah it’s a sentimental stroll down memory lane, but hey, “Once a Marine, Always a Marine”
