Col. Robert Goetz welcomes approximately 200 high school students from across the nation to Marine Corps Recruiting Command’s 2018 Summer Leadership and Character Development Academy at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, Virginia, July 16. Students accepted into the academy were hand-selected by a board of Marines who look to find attendees with similar character traits as Marines. Inspired by the Marine Corps' third promise of developing quality citizens, the program was designed to challenge and develop the nation's top-performing high school students so they could return to their communities more confident, selfless and better equipped to improve the lives of those around them. Goetz currently serves as the commanding officer for the academy. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by LCpl. Naomi Marcom)
