Daniel Baldwin will miss his three friends, Garren Lucas, Samuel Janorschke and Kade Cooper.
Now a high school graduate, the 18-year-old will enter the Army.
Lucas, 18, will leave on a two-year mission, and 18-year-old Janorschke and 17-year-old Cooper, following summer, will go to college in Fairbanks.
“This is who I hang out with,” said Baldwin, his three friends by his side during the Skyview High School graduation Monday night.
“Obviously I’m going to miss home,” he said. “I’ve never been out of Alaska, so it’s going to be a whole new experience.”
