Jacob Tyler Serafin of Aurora is shipping out Aug. 15 to Parris Island for bootcamp. He's in the United States Marine Corps 3rd Recruit Training Battalion Mike Company.
Recently, he and his brother Zach of Aurora visited the nation's capital in Washington, D.C. and stopped at the World War II Memorial, plus other sites.
He joined the Marines last September for his 18th birthday present to himself. Zach said his family is very proud of Jacob, who will graduate from bootcamp in November.
