COLUMBUS, Ga. â€” While many of his fellow Plymouth grads spent time in college classes the past five years, 2004 Plymouth grad Seth Hunter has had a bit different classroom on the way to his bright future.
Enlisting in the Air Force out of school, Hunterâ€™s rise up the ranks has included three combat tours of duty in Iraq, and most recently graduation from the United States Armyâ€™s prestigious Ranger School. A Staff Sergeant in the Air Force, Hunter is one of less than 200 Airmen in the history of the Air Force to successfully complete the course.
PLYMOUTH â€” A family history of service is having an impact.
Veterans Day observance at Jefferson Elementary has traditionally included a message from a local Veteran. This yearâ€™s speaker is an everyday influence on the schoolâ€™s students.
Custodian Kirk Clark interacts with the students at the school every day, and coming from a family full of Veterans â€” his father was in the Army (82nd Airborne), two brothers in the Marine Corp, one in the Air Force and one in the Navy â€” heâ€™s inspired a whole new group of young people to service.
