Someone get this marine and NFL contract.
The US Marine Corps has defended a recruit who rather violently intervened in a schoolyard fight in Stockton, California last week.
18-year-old Marine Josue Valdez Sarmiento was taking part in a recruitment drive at Edison High School when a fight broke out in the school yard.
He quickly put an end to that.
Though the school defended the Marine’s actions, saying they were “proud” of him for “responding to what appeared to be a dangerous situation”, they noted his actions “could have been improved.”
Sarmiento, a former student of the school, has since been re-assigned to office duties and will no longer be around students. “He’s been mentored and he has learned from this situation of how to intervene in the future,” the school added.
