Ada, Mich. – Five siblings including quadruplets in a western Michigan family are joining the U.S. Armed Forces after graduating from high school this year.

Quadruplets Nevin, Mason, Bryce and Rose Lees are becoming members of the U.S. Marine Corps, the Air National Guard, the Navy and the Air Force, respectively. Adopted sibling Yoel Lees also graduated Forest Hills Northern High School in Grand Rapids alongside the quadruplets and two other siblings. He’ll be joining the Marine Corps this fall.

Mason Lees tells the Grand Rapids Press he chose the Air National Guard to pursue aerospace propulsion. Yoel Lees says he became interested in the Marine Corps for the culture and brotherhood.

Rose Lees wants to be an emergency medicine physician. She tells WXMI-TV she’s always wanted to serve to “help out our world.”
