Letter from Maj Chris Brewster

August 9th, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

Received this note recently from a Major in the Reserves. Even though this letter is already availble as a comment to an earlier post, I wanted to put it on the front page to make sure everyone would see it. Belive it or not, the thing that gives me the most hope, is to hear other people’s successful stories of returning to OCS after serious injuries.

Hang in there, Candidate. I found myself NPQ during the 4th week of PLC Seniors. I suffered a compound fracture of my right ankle during the same evolution (I fell off of the rope). I was not sure if I would be found PQ to return to training, and, to make matters worse, I was concerned about losing my scholarship as a cross country runner at my university.

Well, I missed fall cross-country season, but, the next summer, I was back at OCS and I completed PLC Seniors and was commissioned a 2ndLt. I am now a Major (left active duty upon my promotion to Major and I am now in the Reserves). My point: if you want it bad enough, you can do it! Don’t give up.

So, keep your chin up, many Marine Officers have been in your position. Now is the time for you to prove your desire to be a leader of Marines. Good luck!

Maj Chris Brewster

Thank you sir.
