U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Baldemar Flores IV, a 2005 graduate of Floresville High School, has completed Drill Instructor School and will report to 2nd Battalion, Golf Company, for service.

Flores enlisted in the Marine Corps Delayed Entry Program in March 2005 and attended recruit training in San Diego, Calif. This was followed by infantry training at Camp Pendleton, Calif., aviation electronics training in Pensacola, Fla., and mortar transportation school at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo.

He served as a motor transportation operator at Camp Lejeune, N.C., and deployed in 2007 to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom with the Combat Logistics Battalion 2. His tour was extended for eight months in Al Taqqadum, Iraq.

Flores was promoted to corporal in September 2008.

He deployed to Afghanistan in 2009 in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, later returning to the United States, where he earned the rank of sergeant.

The Marine sergeant is married to Sgt. Amie Elaine Johnson-Flores, stationed at Miramar, Calif. They have three children -- Azerah, 8, Baldemar “Izzy” Flores V, 6, and Lucas, 1.
