Marine Corps Private Charles J. Blumreich-Lawson, son of Marilyn Blumreich and Donald J. Lawson of Vevay, earned the title of United States Marine after graduating from recruit training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, S. C.
Blumreich-Lawson completed entry-level military training designed to transform recruits from civilian to Marine. Training subjects included close-order drill, marksmanship with an M-16A4 rifle, physical fitness, martial arts, swimming, military history, customs and courtesies.
One week prior to graduation, he endured The Crucible, a 54-hour final test of recruits' minds and bodies. Upon completion, recruits are presented the Marine Corps emblem and called Marines for the first time.
Blumreich-Lawson is a 2012 graduate of Switzerland County High School.
