GOWEN, Mich. (WOTV) This is a time of year when families are celebrating milestones: finishing elementary school, graduating high school, and taking a next step to their future.
One family that is marking a bittersweet time is the Tow family of Gowen. Jacob is joining the U.S. Army and they decided to send him off with a party! He is going to basic training at Fort Benning, Georgia. Jacob says he didn’t choose college, and the U.S. Army will give him the training he needs to get a better job. His family says they are sad to see him go, but proud of his service to his country.
