Fallen marine's story to inspire new recruits

Capt. Matthew Manoukian knew he wanted to be a Marine as far back as age 8, according to his father. The Los Altos native served two tours of duty in Iraq and two in Afghanistan, and was killed in August 2012 in an surprise attack. He was honored on Aug. 8 when the ceremony room -- where new recruits take an oath -- inside the San Jose Military Entrance Processing Station at Moffett Field was named in his honor.
