JUSTIN HYNES, A fourth-generation apprentice with Local 28 (Eastampton, N.J.), is proudly serving with the U.S. Marine Corps as a White House guard, reports Justin’s father, Franny Hynes, who is also a Local 28 member.
Franny says Justin placed his apprenticeship training on hold to serve in the Marines and that “his hard work habits and ‘can do’ attitude learned in the trade contributed to him being hand-picked for this important detail, from a field of hundreds of Marines.”
There has been a long line of Hynes in Local 28. In addition to Justin and Franny, Justin’s great-grandfather Patty and grandfather Dukie were both members. Brother Chris and uncle Kenny are members, too.
