But hey, don't want to stop there. :)

This one, same title, was done in 1955: http://www.goodtogovideo.com/makingmarinedvd.html

And this one was updated in 2008: http://militaryrecordings.com/marine-earning-the-title

So...there you have it.

Gotcha!

Go back to your original question: "Military Channel Marine Corps boot camp video from 89???"

The subject appears that you are asking if this is video is from 89.

"Can anyone confirm that this is the 1 hr video shown on the Military Channel following a platoon through boot camp on MCRD San Diego in 1989? Any help would be great!!""

Again, appears you are asking if anyone can confirm whether this is the video that was filmed in 1989.

So my answer was to confirm that, yes, it was filmed in 1989.

But understanding your question now, what you are asking it appears is whether this 1989 Making of a Marine video is the one aired on the military channel, I believe the answer to that is, no, it is not.

The 1989 video/DVD is a bit less than an hour long, and from my research, the "Making Marines" series shown on the Military Channel is just short of three hours. If you are looking to purchse the one from the Military Channel, google "miitary channel making Marines or Making of a Marine, and there are several sources where it is available.

Okay. Well...sorry, can't help you there. Only one I located from Military Channel is the one at Parris Island.

I did come across one from 1999 that was a series on the Discovery Channel, but it is not the one you posted.

Strike 3 for me!
