I thought it was a two-fer, but it turns out the guy's last name is Moorman and he's not from SLC.
Ah, but there is hope:
Moorman’s dreams of flying machines in the Navy was replaced with his long-term goal to graduate from the Marine Corp., and become an intelligence officer for the CIA.
Marine Corp - several times in the article.
Best of luck kid. Hope your mom saves the newspaper clipping.
