WHY JOIN THE MARINE CORPS? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JXIeA1_TsTA Above is a video advertisement on why people should join the  Marine Corps. Although I do not have any association with  soldiers or anything in those departments, I felt this video  captivated what it takes to put your life on the line for your  country. Ultimately, I found that this video exemplifies a term we  have discussed in class from Chapter 4. This term, Organizational  Stories, work to represent the interests and values of the  storytellers. Throughout the video, we are exposed to different  ranks of men and women in the Marine Corps, as they share their  reasons for joining and staying in that organization.

I think that this clip allows viewers to understand the Marine
