MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. - The commandant of the Marine Corps has stressed the importance of improving the leadership and skills of noncommissioned officers so they can take charge in a variety of stressful situations. Headquarters and Support Battalion, Marine Corps Base, is doing its part to train NCOs to become the leaders of tomorrow by sending their Marines through the Corporal's Course June 13-23. The two-week course helped to hone leadership abilities that have been learned by the students, turning them into NCO's who can not only lead Marines in their section but lead all Marines whether in a safe stateside environment or on the battlefield, according to Sgt. Stephanie Whitehurst, an instructor at the course.(Official U.S. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. Brandon R. Holgersen)(released)
