about this book

At the age of seventeen, Marco Martinez was a thug
At the age of twenty-two, he was a hero

Hard Corps tells the story of a young man’s incredible transformation from gun-toting gang member to recipient of the Navy Cross, the second-highest honor a U.S. Marine can receive. Gritty, riveting, and ultimately inspiring, Hard Corps captures the “ooh-rah” spirit of the U.S. Marine Corps and the grueling life on the front lines.
