Headed to Bootcamp

Headed to Bootcamp

Our Grandson Stephen Watt graduated from Champlin Park High School June 7th, 2009, he becomes 18 years old on Aug. 1st and will leave for Marine Boot Camp on Aug. 10th. Stephen has wanted to be a Marine for a long time and during the last year of school he committed to the Marines and his desire to serve his country with the support of his family. On July 12th we hosted a big party for friends and family to give Stephen a big OOH-RAH send-off. He gave his special family members pins to “wear for him” and rubber-band bracelets to his brothers, sisters and friends. Stephen was captain of his high school wrestling team, played hockey and enjoys sailing, a wonderful young man who will be a valuable addition to the security of America!
