ADA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Five Forest Hills Northen High School graduates from the same family are now heading to the military.

Quadruplets Rose, Bryce, Mason and Nevin Lee as well as their brother, Yoel, are joining different branches of the military.

The Lee siblings are part of a family of 12 children. Seven of them graduated from high school Wednesday.

On Friday, Rose, Bryce Mason and Yoel appeared on NBC’s “TODAY” show, with Nevin joining by phone from Camp Lejune in North Carolina, where he is in basic training to become a U.S. Marine. TODAY show’s Willie Geist said they may be the most patriotic family in America.

Rose has enlisted in the Air Force; Bryce is going to the Navy; Mason is joining the Air National Guard and Yoel will join Nevin in the Marines.

Bryce was the first to decide to join the military, after talking with recruiters. Rose said she chose the Air Force based on the job she wants in the future, but has wanted to serve since she was little.

“I think it’s a great way to help out our world,” she said.

Their father told the TODAY show he “couldn’t be any more proud of them.”
