When I think of what makes a best friend I think of the people who never leave your side, the people who stick with ya through it all. So here are a few pictures of the 5 people I just can't get to leave me alone. Any suggestions on how to shake em' are much appreciated. #nationalbestfriendday#loveorwhatever

This is Tresor Bunker, the Marine Corps veteran we introduced in our last post. Tre's now officially a Cal alum, having graduated on May 14 with his degree in Middle Eastern Studies. He'll now enter the graduate program at Berkeley. When he spoke to California magazine last spring, Tre shared his motivation for studying the region he'd known as a soldier. "It was never about politics for me. It was about the guys next to me. But these days my newsfeed is just filled up with foreign affairs. After being in the Middle East for so long, this stuff just keeps pulling me back.
I would love to make an impact in the region. It’s something I dream of, like if we could get to where people weren’t getting killed every day. And that sounds somewhat hippie-ish, or whatever. You know, love, or whatever.
I’m not so naïve to think the whole world is nice and good. I’m not. I never will be. The world is a nasty place. It really is. But it would be just like those days that the firefights didn’t come, those days that war didn’t come. How relieved would you be if you woke up for a week, a couple of weeks, a month, and nobody had been killed in the Middle East from an act of terrorism or a drone strike?"
