Marine Corps Graduation, August 2004


In late August, 2004, Case graduated from Marine Corps boot camp at Parris Island, NC.  The training here is the toughest in the world and Case completed it with honor.

We're proud of Case... but we knew he was good before he ever left.

From their website, here's a bit about the mission and vision that drive the training that Case accomplished.  For more info, go here.
