According to the Commandant of the Marine Corps, Gen. James F. Amos, although she has never stood on the yellow footprints as a recruit, gone face to face with a drill instructor or marched across a parade deck in her service uniform, she is a Marine.

“You can’t buy the title Marine. You can’t sell the title Marine. It can’t be traded; it can’t be inherited; it can’t be donated. It must be earned,” quoted Lt. Gen. Steven A. Hummer, commander of MARFORRES, as he addressed the audience prior to presenting the “Honorary Marine,” symbolic placard and pin to Mrs. Taylor.
