Master Gunnery Sergeant Janel A. Spencer and Colonel Stephanie C. Smith spoke to me Friday evening at the CIAA Basketball Tournament.
Let me explain how big this is, Spencer has reached the highest enlisted rank in the Marines. And Smith -- she's one step away from being a one-star general. And they are Marines--The Few. The Proud.
Smith will be delivering a speech to the ladies of Johnson C. Smith and Shaw University before Saturday's championship game. I'm sure that's going to be a hell of a motivation speech.
