KAREN NACHIN: My name is Karen Nachin. I live in Westerly, Rhode Island. My folks live in Narragansett so I’m here o and on during the summer and it’s just one of my favorite places to sh. My son is Corporal Michael Nachin. He’s stationed in Okinawa with the Third Reconnaissance Marines A Company. Hoorah. If you ever have a chance to attend a Marine Corps graduation it was probably one of the best experiences of my life. It was just completely awesome. And at rst I guess you’re very worried. You’re nervous over boot camp and everything else, and then you get that rst letter and you feel a little better. But he’s been in it, will be two years next month now, so after a while it kind of gets status quo. You get used to it. He was back here - - actually had a month leave and we actually came shing down here. My daughter got married up at the Towers. It was just really great. He had his Dress Blues and it was really nice to have him here for the wedding. I always say to everybody, and I know he’s going to kill me if he ever sees this, the Marines did for him in three months what I tried for 21 years to accomplish. He decided to enlist and, you know, at rst I was really nervous, and by the time he came out the transformation was just awesome. I just couldn’t believe how responsible and together and what a changed man he came out. And then he set his sights on Recon which I didn’t realize, it’s a little more dicult than I thought, and he was able to accomplish that task which we were all very proud of. I just want to shout out to Mike, I love you and very proud of every Marine who serves.
 
Karen Nachin, mother of Corporal Michael Nachin, remembers her son’s Marine Corps recruit training graduation. She was proud to see the positive impact twelve weeks of recruit training had on her son.
