LITTLE CHUTE, Wisc. – Shiloh Bent, a Kaukauna, Wisconsin, native, announced his decision of joining the military at Little Chute High School on Tuesday, October 16th for Signing Day. This day is for students to show off their accomplishments to the rest of the school and inspire them. Bent chose to enlist in the Marine Corps through Recruiting Sub-Station Appleton.

                Bent has family in the military whom have served in the military. This influenced his big decision to enlist.

                “My grandfather was in the Army and served many years,” said Bent. “He is one of my biggest supporters when it came to my decision to enlist in the Marines.”

                Bent trains with the recruiters of RSS Appleton to prepare himself for boot camp.

“He’s already starting to show improvement since the first time he’s trained with us at the recruiting office,” said Staff Sgt. Brent Howard, RSS Appleton’s staff non-commissioned officer-in-charge. “He’s very motivating. He motivates all the other poolees around him.”

                Bent’s picture will go up at his school in the Cove of Valor upon graduation of recruit training. This wall is where students and faculty can honor the men and women who serve the country.

“It is such an honor to think my picture will be up there along those who served before me,” said Bent. “I know to get there I’m going to face many challenges, but I’m really looking forward to earning the title United States Marine.”
