    New Marines

    Got to brag a little about my cousins kids, Zachary and Matthew, Graduating today from MCRD San Diego.



    a video report of the story:

    My son Jake is sitting at Ft. Sill right now, waiting on artillery school to begin. He graduated boot camp in January (of course you know this JD, you saw him off with me) LOL

    Ps--those kids, like Jake, look like a piece of STEEL. Jake is 6'6" tall and when he came back he looksed like a body builder. My next oldest son went from "if" he was going in to "when" he goes in upon seeing Jake in the airport.

    JD, please send my best wishes to our brothers in that picture.

    lol...Matt's older Brother (the oldest of all the siblings) is now talking of joining. They have another brother, Jack, that has been a Marine for a couple years already. I guess he can't take having his younger brothers be in better shape than him.
