Walking out of school after your last final before Christmas break is a great feeling, but for Brighton Martin, it was really awesome; his big brother was there to surprise him. Easton Martin had been away since August for Basic Combat Training at Fort Sill in Oklahoma. On a short holiday leave, his first stop was to see his best friend. In his 6-year commitment to the Army National Gaurd, Easton will graduate Basic Combat Training, then move on to his MOS (military occupation specialty) training at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri for 12N Horizontal Construction Engineering. As he fulfills his duties to the National Guard he plans to pursue a degree in Civil Engineering
