Talk about a pretty big milestone – Corporal Jake McMahon is 21!

But, he’s not celebrating with his family, at least not his blood relatives. Not his mom and dad. Not his cousins, grandparents, or life-long friends on Grand Island. Instead, he’s spending it serving this great Nation. He’s spending it with his Marine family, the ones he’s been with for nearly three years.

During that time, Corporal McMahon has been deployed to Cuba and Bahrain. He’s been stationed in Norfolk, Virginia and will be heading to Camp Pendleton in California this summer.

Corporal McMahon is one of many Western New Yorkers who are serving our Country.  We want to say a heartfelt thank you to Corporal McMahon and all of the Military members for making this Nation the best in the world. God Bless America and Happy Birthday, Jake.
