Get ready to feel patriotic as artist Kris Kuksi gives us this amazing piece of art.
If you're able, stand up and put your hand over your heart for a little less than three minutes while you lay eyes on one of the most unique and inspirational Marine Corp sculptures ever.
This statue of a Marine is almost 7 feet tall and is replete soldiers, planes, and the other tools our proud U.S. men and women use to serve their country and keep us safe from the harm they stand before everyday.
Here's the great video:
Marine Corps Recruiting Command unveiled three unique sculptures by artist Kris Kuksi at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, Virginia, December 13, 2017. Kuksi was contracted by J. Walter Thompson, the advertising agency of the Marine Corps, to create three sculptures that embody embody the "fighting spirit" of the Marine Corps. The main sculpture, "At Their Core," is a statue of a Marine that stands nearly seven feet tall and weighs nearly 150 pounds. Kuksi spent nearly eight months constructing the sculptures and used a variety of materials such as model kits, toys, army men, and 3D printed parts.

We'd like to give a big thanks to Marine Bryan Nygaard for sharing this unique and inspirational video!
"The mentality of a Marine is selflessness, camaraderie, brotherhood and kinship--all working together and fighting to the death for your fellow man. I wanted to capture the fighting spirit," Kuksi said,
Our hearts and minds go out to all of our equally inspirational fighting men and women for their self-sacrificing duty and service to our great country!
