These young men following their dream, their goals!  This is a big, big decision in their lives.  It changes their lives and our lives forever!  The disciplines and values they learn will everyone they meet a better person.

It is so wonderful to feel that pride for your grandson.

Comment by MeemeBop yesterday
My grandson is leaving July 6 for boot camp in Parris Island. We are so proud of him. Will miss him but know he is accomplishing what he has wanted to do for some time. He can't wait!
