ASHS students John Martinez and Errix Stevens will join the United States Marine Corps soon after graduation. Martinez leaves on June 12th, and Stevens says he will be on standby, that his call could come any day following graduation. “Literally within hours.” Both recruits will head to Parris Island, South Carolina, for sixteen weeks of boot camp during the hottest part of the summer. “I’m nervous but excited,” said Stevens. “I’m ready to do something with my life, to be a great example for my community and the people I grew up around.” Martinez says he has always wanted to be a Marine. “I chose the Marines because it’s a family tradition. My dad retired from the Marines, and his dad retired from the Navy. My plan is to stay in and retire, like my dad.” Stevens says he his original plan was to join the army. “But I didn’t want to live in the shadows of family members who were in the army, so I chose the Marines instead.”
