8-year-old Marine Hopeful Sells History Lessons Instead of Lemonade

An 8-year-old Jackson, Michigan boy loves American history so much that he opened a stand in his front yard so he could school the neighborhood kids for 25 cents a lesson.

“History is very special to the world,” Gabe Fulmerhouser told a local NBC News affiliate.

Gabe said he’s loved history since as long as he can remember and hopes to become a Marine someday.

His dad helped him paint a giant American flag on the front of his stand, which features numerous books on America’s wars and other learning materials like presidential flashcards.

Gabe’s family has a history of serving in the military, NBC reported.

“One of his things that he loves to do is to have veterans, to talk to veterans, so my hope would even be that veterans come over and are able to share war stories with him,” his mother, Lesli Fulmerhouser, told the station.

He is no Marine! I applaud what he's doing but do not him a Marine! That's a title earned with sweat and blood!

Children in public school today dodge more bullets than the Marines. This little Marine is awesome.

Why would he want to be a marine for this evil government?

His parents need to educate the young man.
