LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Every year, between 20 and 30 young men and women from the area enlist in the Marine Corps according to one of the local recruiters.
The latest group headed out to boot camp on Monday.
One of them is Cory Schubert.
In the video above, the La Crosse native tells WXOW's Amy DuPont that he can't wait to serve his country.
Amy and photographer Mark Bronson are following Schubert and other recruits as they begin their Marine Corps careers. More of their stories can be found on our special Marching Orders section on our website.
