One day, when I was young, my mom took me to a car show at a McDonald’s in North County not too far from our home.  There at the car show was this guy in a dressy blue and red uniform.  I asked my mom, who is that guy?  My mom told me, “that is a Marine.”  He looked 10’ tall!  From that moment on, I wanted to be a Marine.  

Dominic joined the Marines just weeks before 9/11. In just a few short months, he was invading Iraq. Click on the pdf for Dominic’s story.
