I'm Corporal Taryn Escott with your Marine Minute
The fighting spirit of the Marine Corps has proven itself yet again. The all Marine Wrestling team competed in the Armed Forces wrestling championship, putting up outstanding performances across all weight classes. One of the most notable matches was that of Capt. Daniel Miller who normally wrestles at a weight of 213-pounds but stepped up to wrestle a 286-pound opponent. And here’s the best part, he beat him.
Capt. Daniel Miller, who is also the team captain had this to say about the competition.
“You know the goal out here is obviously to win but you know at the end of the day it’s also to make everyone who came before us and everyone who comes after us proud of our performance today. I know that I’m sure proud of my Marines and how we performed out here and I think I’m pretty safe in saying that everyone who came before us and everyone who comes after will be proud of that as well.”
