Two more U.S. Marine Hometown Heroes recently completed their basic training and have proudly entered service to the United States. Christopher Works graduated from SoHi with the class of 2012 and today is Pvt. Christopher Works, U.S. Marine. “Getting to know Staff Sgt. Rehm was what motivated me specifically to join the Corp., but being in military service is something I have aspired to since I was a little shrimp. It’s all I have ever wanted to do with my life,” said Works. “It was an extensive process before I finally was accepted into the military and it was Staff Sgt. Rehm’s belief in me and perseverance that ultimately was successful and the fact that I believe if you want something you don’t quit until you get it,” he said.
Also returning as a Hometown Hero and U.S. Marine recently was KCHS class of 2014 grad Jeffery McNutt, “For me personally the reason I signed up was to get out of town and be able to help protect people and serve my country and I didn’t see a better way to accomplish my goals than with the U.S. Marines,” McNutt told the Dispatch. “I am most definitely a different person than I was this spring when I graduated from high school. Basic training grows each recruit in a different way, but always in a way that betters them so when they come home they may be different, but better than they were before. The crucible the final challenge before you become Marine was the toughest part of boot camp. But once you complete basic training you have a level of confidence that I don’t believe you can experience anywhere else.”
