After graduating from Fort Hill High School in Cumberland, Md., that dream would become a reality."


"Nearly three and a half years later, Alder is now a corporal in the Marine Corps, and an MV-22B Osprey tiltrotor aircraft crew chief with more than 250 flight hours providing assault support for coalition ground troops in Afghanistan."
