Newly promoted U.S. Marine Corps corporals assigned to Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Yuma Headquarters & Headquarters Squadron (H&HS) received their blood stripes during a Blood Stripe Ceremony in front of the H&HS building May 3, 2018. The blood stripe honors the blood that was shed by Marine officers and noncommissioned officers (NCO) during the Battle of Chapultepec in 1847. The blood stripes are sewn on the trousers of NCOs, Staff NCOs, and officers in remembrance of those who courageously fought in the battle. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl.
