Messmer has plans to join the Marine Corps Reserves while in college and wants to be a pilot for the Marine Corps while spending his career maintaining aircraft.

The Young Marines is not an organization geared toward recruiting for the Marine Corps, but Messmer said he would follow that path like others in his family.

“Most of my family is Marine Corps. I’ve been fascinated with it,” Messmer said. “Being in the Young Marines all these years, it has shown that I could really have a bright future with the Marine Corps.”
