Healing but scarred: Marine wounded in July 16 attack is back to recruiting

The bullet holes are everywhere inside the Marine recruiting office on Lee Highway.

Bullet holes in the chairs, the desks, the walls, the ceiling, the shelves, the couch where Sgt. DeMonte Cheeley was sitting when a lone gunman blasted more than 30 rounds through the window.

Some of the holes have been patched up now, the tangible reminders of the attack filled in, smoothed out and covered with patches of white primer.
