Andrameda Symphony Gonzalez, a 2017 Roswell High School graduate, has recently graduated from the Marine Corps Bootcamp in Parris Island, South Carolina. She is the daughter of Sergio S. Gonzalez and Dora J. Chavez.

While in the Delayed Entry Program for 11 months in her senior year at Roswell High School, she received the rank of Private First Class before departing to bootcamp for her efforts in finding recruiting referrals. Before departing bootcamp, PFC Gonzalez was also the Platoon Guide for Recruiting Station Roswell and Las Cruces combined.

While in bootcamp, PFC Gonzalez received a Maritorious Mast Certificate as well as a certificate for 1st Class Combat Fitness Test with points of 288 out of 300. She has also earned National Defense ribbons and medals as well as a Sharp Shooter Shooting Badge.

PFC Andrameda S. Gonzalez is now on her way to additional Marine Corps training after Recruiting Duty and then on to MOS School where she will learn her job skills before reporting to her 1st Duty Station.

“My daughter says she still can’t believe she is a Marine. She said she always wanted to be one since she was 12 years old; it’s now a dream come true,” Sergio Gonzalez said. At that time, she was already a PFC with the Young Marines, a youth program that centers itself around the customs, courtesies and traditions of Marines and concentrates on creating young leaders. She hopes to inspire other male and female potential recruits in the near future.
