Red River Parish resident Corey Russell recently graduated from basic training at Parris Island. Russell is now a Marine.
The Journal congratulates Russell and says, “Thank you in advance for your service to our country.” We suggest you do the same when Russell is in town next. You may notice a firmer handshake, a straighter walk, and those other traits that distinguish a Marine.
The photos accompanying this article show Russell with his grandmother Janie Russell, with his girlfriend SueZanna Albritton, with his brother John, and some “action” shots of Russell in training.
