My cousin officially left active duty in the United States Marine Corps.
He served two tours in Afghanistan and one in Iraq. He finished his active duty as a fire fighter at Camp Pendleton in San Diego County just outside Oceanside CA.
I send my sincere thanks to my cousin for his 8 years of active service. I am profoundly grateful that he was never seriously injured.
He and his bride will celebrate their one year anniversary next month.
Semper Fi JDC. Best of luck as you and ARC begin this next phase of your lives together.
