Veteran’s Voice: U.S. Marine Corps Corporal Pernell Bush

A veteran shares his voice with Central Florida

Without any desire to go into the military, Corporal Pernell Bush thought he would have a future in sports until it was time to leave high school.

He then found himself in a U.S. Marine Corps recruitment office.

Bush had three military career options: become a mail clerk, part of the cooking staff or part of the infantry.

This is how his infantry life began as he left his civilian life behind.

Hear Bush’s story about the brotherhood that the Marines offered and his time in Camp Lejeune, Iraq, Haiti, and post-service.
