I didn't know what to say. He seemed too young, too immature, not ready for this challenge. I wanted him to wait. But I knew that it was his decision.
PFC Steven Wilson, USMC, graduated from boot camp at Parris Island, SC in early March. He then completed combat training at Camp Lejune, NC and he is now attending technical school at Pensacola Naval Air Station, FL.

I'm pretty sure he now knows at least a dozen ways to knock me out. But I'll never let him forget that he can't beat his old man.
