Help Nick go to Marine Boot Camp

Nicholas McIntosh, 17 is an expatriate American living in Lima, Peru with his family and graduating High School this December, 2017. When he was 4 his mother died suddenly and his older brother, Joseph, had cancer at the time. Eventually, a few years later, their home in Florida was foreclosed and lost. The difficulties of raising a large family in crisis proved daunting and Nick's family moved to Lima, Peru. He had always heard positive things about the US Marines and had several cousins and an uncle who served in the Marine Corps. Given the value Nick has for personal development and betterment and serving his country, joining the Marines was a logical choice and one that his dad and his four brothers and one sister will be proud of. Nick will prepare before hand with continued physical conditioning training, drown proofing lessons and Mixed Martial Arts. In addition, Nick has to cover international & national document related expenses to process and be authorized to travel as a minor from Peru to the US, emigration fees, flight costs to America and especially US living expenses for 3-4 months awaiting a start date in Marine Boot Camp at Parris Island once initial USMC MEPS screening is carried out. Your help is greatly appreciated!
