ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A senior enlisted marine assigned to the Marine Maintenance Assist Team at the Maintenance Management Center retired Friday.

Master Gunnery Sergeant Raul Catig's 26 years of service has taken him all over the world. During today's retirement ceremony Catig told his fellow marines it was always his dream to follow in his grandfather's footsteps in the military.

Catig said he's retiring at a rank higher than his grandfathers, but with not as many years of service. Catig encouraged his fellow marines to be a mentor.

"Mentorship is very important to the marines, leadership is very important too how you, you lead by example it's not just how you talk, everybody can do a lot of talking, it how you act," said Catig.

Catig has received Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medals, Combat Action Ribbons, other medals for good conduct and national defense. Today Catig said he intends to spend more time with his son and wife.
