Cross Roads Young Marines Getting a Step Ahead 10/31/13
CBS 7 News
A local bootcamp in Big Spring takes their training to the next level. Kids between the ages of 8 and 18 are invited to train with former Marine and Navy Veterans to become a Young Marine.
Once these young marines finish the four week long bootcamp, they can participate in competitions against other young marine organizations, work in young marine community services, and qualify for marine camps to raise their rankings. Eventually, they can even qualify for a college scholarship according to volunteer, Jackie Jackson.
This is a new program to Big Spring, but has been nationally recognized for over 50 years. Jackson says any boy or girl between 8 and 18 is welcome to join. To find out more, visit http://www.crossroadsym.org.
