Young Marines Unit Building Character and a Focus on Service

Retired Marine 1st Sgt. Vivian Price-Butler

With the Memorial Day holiday, couldn't help but notice this story from The Washington Post. 

BALTIMORE — Bob Nobles and Cornell Wright might not have a chance to serve their country when they are adults. No matter: They are serving it now.
“Good morning, Young Marines,” barked 1st Sgt. Vivian Price-Butler, greeting Bob and Cornell and eight other boys Friday morning in her small classroom at Kennedy Krieger High School.
“Good morning, First Sergeant,” they replied in unison, standing straight and still.
The Young Marines is an education and service program reaching 10,000 youths around the nation and overseas. Of its more than 300 units, only one is dedicated to students with special needs.
