A Marine Body Bearer

ESPN shares with us the inspiring story of Alexander Findura, a college football player who was also an elite United States Marine Corps Body Bearer. Alexander walked away from a full-ride scholarship and enlisted in the Marines after one year of college. His strength, determination, and self-discipline eventually landed him a position as a Body Bear. The unit has one simple mission to carry fallen Marines to their final resting place and to do so with as much honor and dignity as possible as they are “The Last To Let You Down”.
