Deerfield resident’s son becomes Marine

Dear Editor:

Marine Corps Pfc. Abraham F. De Freitas, son of Ediberto De Freitas of Deerfield Beach, FL, earned the title of United States Marine after graduating from recruit training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, SC.

For 13 weeks, De Freitas stayed committed during some of the world’s most demanding entry-level military training in order to be transformed from civilian to Marine, instilled with pride, discipline and the core values of honor, courage and commitment.

Training subjects included close-order drill, marksmanship with an M-16A4 rifle, physical fitness, martial arts, swimming, military history, customs and courtesies.

One week prior to graduation, De Freitas endured The Crucible, a 54-hour final test of recruits’ minds and bodies. Upon completion, recruits are presented the Marine Corps emblem and called Marines for the first time.

De Freitas is a 2009 graduate of Miami Dade Christian Academy of Hollywood, FL.

April is “National Car Care Month”

Dear Editor:

Three out of four cars need service. If you own a vehicle, chances are it needs some work. National Car Care Month in April is the ideal time to spring into action and give your car some extra attention.

Results of vehicle inspections held at community car care events across the country reveal that 77 percent of vehicles need service or parts. Neglected vehicle care almost always means much higher costs down the line in the form of more extensive repairs or lost resale value.

Whether you visit a professional service technician or do it yourself, following a routine maintenance program on an ongoing basis can keep your car safe and dependable.
