Scuttlebutt Ep 137: Modern Day Marine 2024 Day 2 – Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps, SgtMaj Carlos Ruiz

Sponsored by Airbus, U.S. Space & Defense, Inc.

Hey, Scuttlebutt listeners. Thank you for checking us out. Day 2 of Modern Day Marine 2024 kicks off in the biggest way possible. The Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps, Sergeant Major Carlos A. Ruiz was kind enough to stop by and share some his time with us. Nancy and Vic are giddy to spend time with the Sergeant Major and he does not disappoint. Sergeant Major shares his wisdom on the current generation of Marines, what it really means to partner with industry, the role of the veteran community, and how investing in Marines and their families is not just investing in national security but is the right thing to do. Sergeant Major’s passion for Marines is so genuine it is infectious. It has to be said that after being so generous with his time on Scuttlebutt, he spent about 45 min outside of our booth talking to every Marine who wanted to speak with him. He didn’t leave until every person, Marine or otherwise, was able to see him. Even the most cynical could see that this wasn’t a performance but the actions of a Marine leader who truly cares about people. Semper Fidelis, Sergeant Major!
