A Texas man is the epitome of grit, devotion and perseverance after dropping more than 200 pounds in an effort to recognize his dream of joining the U.S. Army.

And William Guinn Jr.’s incredible quest became a reality earlier this month when he was finally sworn into the military, KTAB-TV reported.
