History is not made in a month, or even in a year. It's forged over a lifetime. And though we take every February to honor the multitude of contributions made to our nation by the African-American community, Black History can not be summed up in four short weeks. Those who make a real difference don't always do so in grand gestures, but rather on a daily basis, in real and meaningful ways.

In collaboration with Complex, the United States Marines would like to invite you to nominate a person in your life who you feel embodies the spirit of Making Black History Every Day. Share your story with us by clicking on the link below. We will review all submissions, and select one person to profile in a feature on Complex.com.
