I mailed this letter today:

Candidate Adams, Carter D.
[Address redacted]

July 29, 2014

Dear Carter,

You don’t know me, but I’m a friend (and ex-IBM colleague) of Rob Shook. I just wanted to take a moment to wish you the best of luck in your remaining few weeks at Marine Corps Office Candidate School.

As the “military brat” of a 30-year (retired) marine, whose dad did three separate one-year deployments during the Vietnam war, and having had the privilege of attending all four of my high school years at Lejeune High School, I’m a little bit familiar with the Semper Fi of the United States Marine Corps. :-)

My dad also did a short stint at Quantico during his career, and I was born in the Portsmouth Naval Hospital, while he was stationed in Norfolk.

Hang in there, and thank you for your decision to serve our country in the United States Marine Corps. I appreciate you!

Most sincerely,


John Martin
