He's not my son, but I claim him any way. This "kid" played football for me. Basically grew up in the house. But yesterday he did something that made me very proud, he became a United States Marine. Graduating at Parris Island. My youngest and him have always been best friends. My son went with the young mans mom and step-dad to the graduation and got back last night. It was just great seeing what they have turned him into.
