Cory Jim’s first job was delivering the Honolulu Advertiser to make some money getting paid about $100 bucks a week. Looking back, working in one of the wealthiest neighborhoods on the island with multi-million dollar mansions enlarged Cory’s dreams of what is possible. Until getting the call one day from a Marine recruiter while lying in bed, who asked, “What are you doing with your life?” Cory thought deeply about it and came to a conclusion that he was not doing a thing being 19. So he found himself on the bus off to MCRD San Diego, CA. His son, Andrew, was born in 2000.
