U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Eric Ramirez, a combat videographer with the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, interacts with Afghan children on Fort Pickett, Virginia, Oct. 11, 2021. Ramirez was recognized as the motivator of the week for his success in producing unique and compelling visual products, highlighting events and stories occurring at Task Force Pickett. He was instrumental in creating a welcome aboard video in Dari and Pushto, communicating critical information about the immigration process to thousands of Afghan individuals at Fort Pickett. “A picture is worth a thousand words,” said Ramirez. “It is pretty amazing being able to gain a multitude of different experiences just by doing my job. Being able to capture moments during Operation Allies Welcome is an honor. It allows me to help tell the story of an operation that is history in the making. An experience like this is why I joined the Marine Corps." (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Sgt. Corey Mathews)
