Sergeant, U.S. Marine Corps Reserves

Name:   Hariton Marachilian
Rank:     Sergeant
Branch:  US Marine Corps
Status:   Reserves
Billet:      Infantry

MOST PEOPLE (AMERICANS OR ARABS) THINK IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO BE BOTH PRO-AMERICAN AND PRO-ARAB.

I joined the Marine Corps Reserve in Feb, 1998 and have since been serving honorably and wish to continue serving in the United States Marine Corps Reserve for many more years to come. I am currently working towards my BS in criminal justice at John Jay College in NYC, and hope to gain employment with the NYPD. As for my family heritage, I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, while my father was born and raised in Egypt to an Armenian father and Lebanese mother. My mother was born and raised in Palestine to Palestinian parents. Both of my parents emigrated to the United States in the early 70's. Being pro-American and pro-Arab has always been hard, however nothing has been harder than having my loyalty questioned after Sept, 11.
