U.S. Marine Capt. Joseph Z. Brown has achieved the top position among students in the challenging 13-week All-Arms Commando Course conducted by the Royal Marines. Not only did he earn the privilege to wear the Royal Marines’ green beret, but his peers also recognized his outstanding qualities by awarding him the Commando Medal, which symbolizes courage, determination, unselfishness, and a positive attitude in the face of adversity. The course involves rigorous training, including a 12-mile weighted march, speed marches, battle drills, and various endurance tests, held in the challenging terrain of the Dartmoor Training Area in southern England. The Royal Marines are renowned for their grueling training, with a high attrition rate, and Brown’s achievement highlights his exceptional dedication and ability to excel in this demanding program.
