U.S. Marines with I Marine Expeditionary Force Information Group, pose for a group photo in front of the General Sherman Tree at Sequoia National Forest during a leadership retreat by Kaweah Lake, California, May 26, 2021. The three-day retreat in the Sequoia National Forest focused on connectedness and personal growth to increase individual and unit resilience. It provided participants with the tools and resources to shape their units' training programs, build character and equip their peers and subordinates with greater life resiliency skills. The interconnectedness of the roots of the Sequoia trees is a metaphor for the network of Marines and sailors that rely on each other through every rank and life situation. The trees are also a metaphor for unit Esprit-de-Corps that expands across a much larger national network. This inaugural retreat set the foundation for future, similar events that will include conditioning events, lectures, guided discussions and guest speakers. (U.S. Marine Corps Photo by Lance Cpl.
