PETERBOROUGH, N.H. (CBS) -- Like most 18-year-old students, Brandon Garabrant is about to graduate from high school.
Unlike most, he has also taken his first steps to becoming a Marine.
He completed enough high school credits in January to allow him to leave school.
"Words can't even express it, this is such an amazing accomplishment," said Brandon's mother Jessie.
Brandon's family is in South Carolina ready to watch him graduate from boot camp on Friday.
