The Yuma Young Marines would like to enlist the help of the public

The youth organization recruits children between the ages of 8 and 18, instilling pride and civic duty in each of its cadets

YUMA, Arizona (KYMA, KECY) – The Yuma Young Marines are one of two units stationed in Yuma County. The group that recruits children between the ages of 8 and 18 acts as a guide.

The establishment of the Young Marines mirrors one of the country’s elite armed forces: the US Marine Corps. Cadets learn the importance of honor, pride, and civic duty.

They also proudly wear their uniforms and are viewed as role models by their peers. Young Marines are involved in drug prevention programs, veteran assistance, and additional community services.

On Saturday, June 12th, the Yuma Young Marines will be holding a car wash to raise funds for their unit. The event is scheduled to start at 7:00 a.m. or 7:00 a.m. and end at 12:00 a.m. or noon.

The event will sell food and drink, and American Legion Rider members will showcase their motorcycles. The money from this event will be used for the uniforms of the cadets. It will also help pay for an upcoming trip where cadets learn more about the Navajo Code Talkers.
