Brig. Gen. Lori Reynolds , first Brigadier General in the Marine Corps. Coming from a military background, that’s right I am a military brat, I am interested in joining the Marine Corps. This news, which is recent, instilled a heroic idol in my heart that will never be replaced. Lori Reynolds disproved the belief that women are inadequate in the Marines. She is an idol because she went through tough training, negativity, doubters, and disbelievers, only to come out on top. What is there to not idolize?
