Lamb earns the title ‘U.S. Marine’
Pvt. Charles D. Lamb, 19, a 2011 graduate of Hastings High School, earned the title “U.S. Marine” upon graduating from Marine Corps recruit training in San Diego on Feb. 10, 2012.
Lamb enters into a proud, lifelong brotherhood composed of the select few men and women who have earned their place in the Corps’ ranks.
Putting his recruit’s honor, courage and commitment to the test, Lamb faced the physically and mentally rigorous challenges packed into the 13 weeks of Marine Corps boot camp. The training was designed to enhance raw talent and to create the morale and discipline required of all Marines.
During recruit training, Lamb joined others from across the country to undertake the quest to be among the world’s military elite. He learned time-honored military customs and courtesies and mastered close-order drill. The demanding physical fitness regimen placed Lamb in the best shape of his life. The training honed vital military skills such as marksmanship, first-aid, martial arts and leadership.
Following approximately 10 days of well-earned leave, Lamb will attend school to learn his occupational specialty. Then Lamb will report to his first duty station to gain further knowledge and experience serving with a Marine Corps unit.
Mary G. Horsch will turn 90 on March 18. Cards can be sent to her at the Regina Nursing Home in Hastings.
