Major General Vaughn A. Ary, Staff Judge Advocate to the Commandant of the Marine Corps

“You can take a degree from Northwestern Oklahoma State University and compete in any organization or company in America. Many of the senior leaders in the Marine Corps are from the Naval Academy or the Ivy League, but I have always been proud to be from a small college in the heartland of America, where you learn the values of responsibility and hard work.”
