Crossed Equator 730121 Lat. 00.00 Long 106.36 Aboard USS New Orleans, LPH-11.   Initiated ancient order of the deep shellback.

"A Fire Team is composed of 3 Marines and their leader. 3 Fire Teams make a squad. 3 Squads make s platoon. 3 platoons, a company. And so on, and so on. All the way up to an entire division. But it all starts with one Marine".
