Aaron Hunter, right, a 19-year-old native of Lynchburg, Va., stands next to U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Christopher Bangert, a canvasing recruiter at Recruiting Sub-Station Lynchburg, after Hunter officially swore into the Marine Corps’ Delayed Entry Program, Aug. 8, 2014. The new Marine Corps poolee worked for almost two years to lose 84 pounds to be eligible to enlist in the Corps. Through old fashioned hard work, determination, and some motivation from the local Marine recruiters, Hunter met his goal and is now awaiting his turn to at recruit training to earn the coveted title of Marine.
