In all honesty, this man has been one of the biggest motivations for my passion and drive to become a United States Marine, and pursue a job in law enforcement and it's crazy to think that I was sitting down so excited to tell my grandpa what my plans were before I was even in elementary school. Now in about 5 months from now I will be enlisting in the Marines out of highschool and continuing my studies in criminal justice. Rest in peace grand pa, Oohrah!
