These pages are about my experiences with the United States Marine Corps. I was a USMC recruit at Parris Island, South Carolina in 3rd RTBn "India" Company, Plt 3044. My experiences with the Marine Corps took place between 980217(2-17-98) and 980323(3-23-98). Know that even though I did part company with the United States Marine Corps, I have the utmost respect for every member of the USMC and the institution itself.
Prepare for Boot Camp!
