Seven seniors graduating from a Michigan high school are from the same family. Four of them are quadruplets, and they're all joining different branches of the Armed Forces.

Bryce, Rose, Mason and Nevin Lees are soon to be members of the Navy, Air Force, Air National Guard and Marine Corps. Each are following the footsteps of their grandfather and brother-in-law.

"We've been pretty close ever since we were little, and now we're going down our own paths, so it's kind of sad,” Rose said.

Each want to help others and see the world. The quadruplets thank their teachers.

"We have friends, but we like to make deeper connections with I'd say our teachers more so, because…” Mason began.

"Speak for yourself,” Bryce interrupted.

"OK, I'll speak for myself,” Mason said.

"I think we just like to make true connections with people,” Rose said.

While they're excited for the future, they're thankful as they look back on their past.

"Don't take the time that you have for granted. People may think that they really can't make a change because we're so young and that we don't have a say. But we actually have the biggest impact out there,” Rose said.

The quadruplets' three other graduating siblings are adopted members of the family.
