I read this just moments ago on (T W S ) That in 2012 they plan on shutting Parris Island down and moving it to Camp LeJeune .
I don't know if this is true or not, but I for one hope not. If anyone else has heard of this can you explain in more detail for us, And for me.
:mad:

I just tried to do a search on it Bill, and couldnt find anything to confirm or deny it.

According to this link, they're actually talking about moving it to Fort Jackson. http://www.strategypage.com/htmw/htmurph/articles/20041022.aspx I don't know what they are thinking. I don't believe it would be a good idea to have Marine recruits training in the same area as Army recruits.
