combat correspondent

Something I acquired today:

Marine Corps News Combat Correspondent Style Guide and Notebook.

There is a Marine Captain who is friends with my Sea Cadets Commanding Officer, I had a conversation with him this past week and about how I am going off to Marine Corps boot camp and going to be a Combat Correspondent. He mentioned to me that he had known a Marine who was one, and gave him this booklet. He was meeting with my CO again today, and gave this to him to give to me. 

It’s really cool! It’s great to see some stuff about my job before I get there.
