Darryl J. Hall has joined the United States Army under the Delayed Entry
Program. The program gives young men and women the opportunity to delay
entering active duty for up to one year.
The enlistment gives the new soldier the option to learn a new skill,
travel and become eligible to receive as much as $50,000 toward a college
education. After completion of basic military training, soldiers receive
advanced individual training in their career job specialty prior to being
assigned to their first permanent duty station.
Hall, a 2004 graduate of Clewiston High School, Fla., will report to
Fort Jackson, Columbia, S.C., for active duty on June 29, 2004.
He is the son of Barbara Robinson of W. Aztec St., Clewiston, and
Darryl Hall of Westfield Drive, Montgomery, Ala.
