Rob officially became a United States Marine last week. Although he has only been one of my best friends for a short few years, I can’t even begin to describe just how proud I am of him and how lucky I feel to have such a friend. Of course, since we are friends I have had the privilege to hear some awesome…ly ridiculous stories from boot camp. The Marines are hardcore for sure, but we all have become to understand that Rob is programmed a little differently. A wrestler in both high school and college left him physically fit as well as mentally strong. Needless to say, boot camp wasn’t as much of a challenge for him as we had all expected. This also led us to believe that he was born to be a Marine. The uniform certainly fits!
