View Full Version : Back from boot camp!

09-18-10, 02:12 AM
Well everyone, I received my Eagle Globe and Anchor on September 11th 2010 and graduated on September 17th. One thing is for sure, its great to be home again. But another thing is, its even better to have earned the title of United States Marine. All the hard times at Parris Island were definitely worth it. For all those poolees out there that are getting ready to ship out... dont quit. Give 110% at all times and show your Drill Instructors that you have what it takes. Your journey at boot camp starts on the yellow footprints and ends on the Parade Deck on Training Day 70. Before you leave, keep PT'ing because trust me.. it WILL help you in the long run. (literally, haha!).

Anyway, thats all for now. Semper Fidelis.

By the way, anyone know how I can get my title changed from poolee to Marine? Its been awhile since I've been on here. :p
