9/11 with our private first class officer!

Standard

How cool and how american it is to be at Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego on 9/11 attending Adrian’s (Adi) Marine Corps Boot Camp graduation. We are so proud of our Adi – he’s the very first in the family to join the U.S. Military!

This is his platoon 3250!  Adi is on the first row, second from right.
