HUBER HEIGHTS – The Miami Valley Young Marines held its first graduation of new Young Marines from Recruit Training of 2016. There were six graduates from the surrounding area:

  • YM PFC Justin Curtis (honor graduate)
  • YM Pvt Ryan Ferguson (most improved)
  • YM Pvt Damien McCormick (most motivated)
  • YM Pvt Brayden Miller
  • YM Pvt Sean Taylor
  • YM Pvt Jayden Wright

Each Young Marine endured a nine week training course each Wednesday night and one Saturday session that lasted eight hours.

They learned close order drill, leadership, teamwork, Young Marine ranks, citizenship, discipline, and more. Once they complete the training they move on to become Young Marines and continue to impact their community teaching Drug Demand Reduction, doing Community Service, and other duties. We also take field trips, do encampments, and more.
