Brothers in Arms Part Two: The Crucible

The Shipp brothers from Hauser Lake, Idaho, are growing up fast. In the eight weeks since I last photographed them the twins have been transformed from boys into men. Recently I traveled to Camp Pendleton in California to see the next phase or their training. I was amazed at their courage and determination. Between the running and chanting I still caught a glimpse of the twins I have known for years. They are on the road to becoming Marines.
