December 2018: Our colleague and close friend completed Marine Corps boot camp. Now USMC Pvt Lane has become the second Sea Bright lifeguard to finish specialized military training in 2018. Lane has completed one of the hardest basic amphibious military training programs in the world. He will begin AIT next month as well as amphibious assault school in the coming year. We are super proud of Curran and we hope he will be able to return to the beach soon. We all knew you could do it bro! Very Proud of you.
