Pfc. Celia A. Izaguirre, a maintenance management clerk with Combat Logistics Battalion 31, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, takes in the view aboard the USS Essex (LHD 2), Oct. 18. Izaguirre was born in the Rift Valley Province of East Africa, and spent her childhood moving from place to place, struggling to get by on her own. While trying to escape violence in Kenya, Africa, Izaguirre and her family attempted to seek shelter at a U.S. Embassy, where she saw the first U.S. Marine, an impression that would stay with her for the rest of her life.
