PFC T. Garrison Sanford
Here are some pictures from his promotion ceremony on Tuesday, February 2, 2010.

Here comes Garrison! Classic Marine walk!
The white building behind the platoon is the Landing Support Shop (Garr's work place).
Garrison picked two buddies to pin his Lance Corporal Chevrons onto the collar of his jacket.
Here Lcpl. Hernandez and Cpl. Espinoza perform the honors.
Notice the 'red patches' on the LS Marines' legs. This signifies they get to 'hold the beach' and unload ships, trains, helicopters, or airplanes while everyone else without the patch 'moves up'. They are the entry point: responsible for everything that is needed for the battlefield.
