Review for Young Marines, Dumfries, VA, USA
The Young Marines is an outstanding program that teaches our kids about respect, honor, integrity, leadership, participation, hard work, dedication, and the list goes on and on. From boot camp, to weekly drills, encampments, and promotions they grow and learn. The message of Drug Demand Reduction is a key focus of the program, educating youths about the effects of drug use on life and on health. The Young Marines promote a healthy lifestyle and a physical fitness routine that's a large part of the program. The comradery and team building they develop will last a lifetime. The Young Marines participate in community service events and volunteer services all year.
Our son received the United States Presidents Volunteer Service Award for 2018 and 2019. He earned two gold device pins and received two letters from the President of the United States of America for his accomplishments. He was also recently named the Young Marine of the Year for his Unit and Young Marine of the year for the Battalion, he's attended National Code Talker events every year from 2017 - 2019 and he continues to help his fellow Young Marines excel by leading physical fitness training, guide book study sessions, and by setting the example for all to follow.
Year after year I see Young Marines retire from the program and become productive and successful young adults. Thank you, Young Marine Program, for your help in developing our son over the past several years. We are the proud parents of a Young Marine Sergeant.
