The United States Marine Corps has added a fresh recruit from the halls of Emmetsburg High School.

In a tweet posted by @ehawkpride on April 27th, senior Jon Lace II is shown following his swearing-in ceremony shaking hands with a Marine recruiter.

Lace II had been active in football, trap shooting, wrestling and track during his high school career. Jon is not a stranger to hard work and early morning responsibilities either. According to his high school wrestling coach, Jon would be lifting weights or loading hogs most days before school. His upbringing is likely to help him excel in one of the hardest military branches the United States has to offer.

Good luck and stay safe!
