[QUOTE]But most critical to the Marines on hand is the importance of [U]camaraderie over competition[/U].

No one pulls out a tape measure to gauge bicep growth. [U]There’s no list of top performers etched on a dry-erase board to remind participants of their superiority — or inferiority[/U].

“It’s all about community and being noncompetitive,” said Marine Capt. Jose Vengoechea, 31, one of three instructors on hand during the advanced session workout. “[U]No one is competing against anybody but themselves[/U].”
