You guys going to Parris Island------take a very good look at this creature! You will meet him on my Island as he has lived there since Moses was a Corporal in the Marine Corps! He is very well liked by all the Drill Instructors :evilgrin: and all the other Marines stationed there and at the MCAS as well! You won't like him, but he will enjoy you very much! Be very careful not to hurt him, as the DIs don't take it lightly:mad: when he is hurt or killed. If he comes to see you and takes a liking to you, just let him eat as long as he wants. As you know, he has to eat too! He will stay on the Island when you are gone and visit the next group of recruits that come to visit him.

Good luck Poolees!

I would tell you where I used to live out there in MCRDSD, but they have torn all the Gomer Pyle huts down now! But remember that I have walked in nearly every footstep you will make while you are there!

Well guys the Marine Corps is ready for ya! Mike Company and November Company graduated today from Parris Island! That means our old friend CODA will be checking in, in a couple of days as a Marine!

You Poolees that are waiting to leave, remember that these Marines were where you are, and now they are Marines and Hard Core!

Do just about every poolee in this site go to Parris Island? It seems like only a handful of us go to San Diego.

Well guys, step on the yellow footprints and earn that title.

Zack, you need to get all the Poolees in your RSS to sign on this site! We need more that's going to MCRDSD!

Mike & November Company just turned loose a whole buch of new Marines today from Parris Island! I got a Marine Corps License plate from there, A good friend's son graduated today! :marine:

We would love to hear from any Marines that graduated today from either MCRD! Tell us your WAR STORIES! :evilgrin:

Question.
Can you be put into a permanent platoon with someone who arrived a day earlier or after.

davblay
06-23-07, 12:13 AM
That bus arrives Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday! It all depends how they form the platoons at receiving. No one knows how that will turn out! If you arrive one day before, or after, some one that you know---the odds are 50/50! It all depends on how many arrived on your, or his, bus---which night----what time it arrived--etc.! The one thing you can be sure of----you will be in the same BN! :marine:

How hard is it to be a Squad leader or a Guide. I know each one requires the same, but different things. I've been told by DI's that they usually take kids with NROTC or some sort of drilling experience. I have none of that but I am very motivated. Idk if thats gonan change once i get down there but what I guess Im asking is..What do they look for judging from your experience

Generally, the SDI will ask who has had NROTC or ROTC training. Then he will judge which has more experience and then pick the first Guide! That will /could change if he screws up or the SDI pipcks another recruit he likes better. So prove yourself qualified and empress the SDI. He is the power behind the Guide selection.

Do people from Nebraska also go to San Diego? Where is the dividing line for west and east? Have a nice flight over here and be sure to check in safely at the airport. I think you'll walk over to MCRD from there, the airport is right next to it so there's no need to talk a bus.

Its like not real. I was at this party with all of my friends last night and its weird when you think about it because by the time your back they will be all gone to college. And the kids that you chill with everyday that you will not see again for 13 weeks. Thats when it kinda hits you. And the funnies thing is at my going away cookout yesterday my recruites were telling all my friends how to get me in trouble at bootcamp, like what to send and stuff.
I ship out Tuesday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:D

Zack, my feeling for you have never changed! I don't know you and I have not developed a opinion of you from your posts! You are young and have a lot to learn, but I have a high respect for all you Poolees that endeaver to enlist in my Beloved Corps! I wish you luck, Zack, while you are MCRD. I hope you excel in avery category. I truly hope you are the HONOR man.

One thing you have to remember, Zack, we Marines are a forgiving bunch, we bicker and argue amongst ourselves, but we will fight for each other, and take a bullet for each other, if we have to!

Semper Fi, my young friend!
