Following high school, he took the next step in realizing his dream of becoming a United States Marine. He was inducted into the Marine Corps on June 9, 2014, and shipped out to San Diego, California for boot camp. Following boot camp, he was sent to Biloxi, Mississippi for his further training.

He was always willing to raise his hand and volunteer to help those around him.
