Nephew joins Marines

My nephew enlisted in the Marines recently. Luckily, he is still in high school and won't be leaving for boot camp until next July. It is scary to think about with everything that is going on in the world today. Especially since he wants to be in infantry. He wants to be a sharp shooter. His only experience with a gun so far has been internet games. I don't think he truly understands what he is getting himself into. But, did any of us at that age? He is a good kid. Doesn't smoke, get in trouble or drink. The recruiter told him that it was ok that he didn't drink; they would teach him.
