Ryan Forbes, second from left, a 13 year-old native of San Diego, talks with Marines about various weapon systems at Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms May 13, 2014. Forbes was an honorary Marine for a day with Lima Battery, 3rd Battalion, 11th Marine Regiment, and learned about the lifestyles of the Marines. He was accompanied by his parents and brother, and attended training with the battery, learning about how to set up and take down an M777 lightweight howitzer and eating lunch with a section. Forbes has wanted to join the military for several years and spends time learning what it would take to get through boot camp. He was diagnosed with medulloblastoma, a form of brain cancer in January. His diagnosis and current treatment for medullablastoma hasnt hampered his enthusiasm for the military.
