Marine Corps Times reports that “a mustang captain is the new face of the Marine Corps’ ‘Fighting with a Purpose’ recruiting campaign, which highlights diversity in the service ranging from minority leaders to varying mission types that are outside the combat zone.”  

“Capt. Micah Hudson, who serves as a legislative analyst in Programs and Resources with Headquarters Marine Corps, is featured in a new video on the service’s recruiting website.”  

“Hudson received his commission in 2007, after making the switch to officer from his last enlisted rank of gunnery sergeant. He was selected by Marine Corps Recruiting Command officials as someone who is aligned with the campaign, said Lance Cpl. Jessica Quezada, a spokeswoman for the command.”
