    Brendan Bialy, 18, was one of the students who subdued one of two shooters who entered STEM School Highlands Ranch, in a southern suburb of Denver, in May.

    Last month, he crossed the parade deck at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, San Diego as his training platoon’s guide. During training, he earned a meritorious promotion to private first class, a program for the ceremony says.

    If it is ever your misfortune to be attacked, alertness will have given you a little warning, decisiveness will have given you a proper course to pursue, and if that course is to counterattack, carry it out with everything you've got! Be indignant. Be angry. Be aggressive.

    Sounds like the nation got a real warrior in the Corp. Thanks for sharing.

    From the 9 year old fighting the mountain lion trying to drag him away to this hero not following "run and hide" pacifistic victim guide book, maybe Gen Z is bringing back the warrior ethos back to the forefront here in Colorado. God knows we need it.

    Well, not everyone can get into the Army. Nice second or third choice, though, being a Marine.

    I am thinking he is on the fast-track for promotion. And rightfully so.

    Out of boot camp as a PFC is good for him as he is closer to the promotion to Lance Corporal (E3). His photo shows he wears the expert marksman badge. In the Coprs that is an achievement that many envy. Semper Fi to the new Grunt. To all the Marines here we just got a new brother, and a damn good one at that.
