Everyone in attendance had an incredible time at the 1st annual Young Marines celebration on Friday July 29, 2022 at the Emerson Middle School.
45 students graduated with the rank of Young Marines private. It was a privilege for all of these proud parents to cheer on their child as they showed off their abilities during the very impressive drill presentation.
The Young Marines program will continue adding Union City students to this wonderful program in the Fall. We witnessed friendship, laughter, discipline, respect and so much more in such a short period of time.
More students will continue to blossom throughout the upcoming school year.
