Late in U.S. Marine Corps boot camp, Pvt. Taylor Fredrickson suffered a major setback. It was November 2010, with only four days of training left, and he was sent to the Medical Rehabilitation Platoon after suffering a stress fracture in his left tibia. “I got dropped, I was angry I couldn’t finish with my platoon, and I was all unmotivated and mad,” said Fredrickson, 18, a 2010 Moffat County High School graduate.
