The Smyrna, Tennessee-native joined the Selected Marine Corps Reserve to serve his country and a become a part of the Marine Corps culture while also further developing his skills to save lives. Irizarryreyes Ealey was selected by his command as a Renowned Reservist, a new initiative, highlighting the highest performers across the SMCR.
“I love that the Marine Corps gives me the ability to make a direct impact on my local community that I can see with my very own eyes,” said Irizarryreyes. “The Marine Corps is full of opportunities such as Toys for Tots where you can not only be serving your country- but your local community as well.”
Being a part of the SMCR gives Ealey and other Marines the opportunity to be a part of the Marine Corps community while maintaining careers throughout their daily lives.
