    U.S. Navy Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Alejandra Deleon with 2nd Dental Battalion, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, II Marine Expeditionary Force, and a native of Houston, Texas, poses for a portrait on Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, March 19, 2024. Each week, 2nd MLG recognizes one outstanding Marine or Sailor that goes above and beyond in their duties and embodies the qualities of an outstanding service member. Deleon is responsible for assisting the Coastal Carolina Hygiene Student program, where she facilitated orientation, coordinated workspaces, and scheduled patients for 41 students helping them become future hygienists. Transferring from her past unit to 2nd Dental Battalion, Deleon felt she had big shoes to fill, she said, “coming here as a newly ranked E-5, expectations here were a bit high,” instead of letting that get in her way, her advice to overcome that challenge was to “ask for help, don’t procrastinate, and keep a positive attitude.” (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl.
