Marine Corps Pvt. Trevor M. Grames, son of Sheila Grames of Rocky Ridge, recently completed 12 weeks of basic training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, S.C designed to challenge new Marine recruits both physically and mentally.

Grames and fellow recruits ended the training phase with The Crucible, a 54-hour, team evolution culminating in an emotional ceremony in which recruits are presented the Marine Corps Emblem, and addressed as "Marines" for the first time in their careers.

Seaman Daniel DeSelms of Oregon, presented colors as part of the U.S. Coast Guard Ceremonial Honor Guard at the prestigious AMVETS Silver Helmet Banquet held last month at the Hilton Washington Dulles Airport in Herndon, Va. DeSelms is based in Alexandria, Va.

The award, a unique silver replica of the World War II GI helmet, has over the years acquired the reputation as the most prestigious of all the awards given by veterans organizations and is now known as the “Veterans Oscar.”

This year’s recipients were Civil Servant of the Year, Judge Robert P. Milich from Youngstown; Alfred A Meadows, of Connecticut, named AMVET of the Year and Congressman John P. Kline of Minnesota, who received the Congressional Award.
