    :(

    My grandfather was a Marine in Vietnam. Thank you for all you endured and did.
  3. Movies about Marines: what do they get wrong? What do they leave out?

    Inspired by Madinfidel's response to my FMJ post :)
  4. Would love to hear opinions about "Full Metal Jacket"

    I've never seen it, but I need to. I was watching some clips on YouTube last night. I knew that "Full Metal Jacket" had the famous R. Lee Ermey monologue, but I did not know that it had the scene...

    Thank you Tennessee Top, you are always so helpful. Even pre-yellow footprints, is it likely that recruits were taught to stand at attention during this initial line-up?
  6. Today's obviously-not-from a Marine question

    Hello USMC community,

    What does it mean to "line up"? Does it involve standing at attention?

    Specifically, if a group of recruits that is just getting to boot camp is ordered to get off...

    Per the MCRD SD museum and veterans of that time, there were no yellow footprints. These pictures apparently aren't from the 50s like I thought. :( research fail

    Thank you, Old Marine. What did the Receiving Barracks look like? The MCRD SD museum thought they might have been a 2-story wooden building used during WW II for receiving.

    I didn't even notice the yellow footprints because it's a black and white picture. Shoot. I thought I had found the pre-yellow footprints receiving barrack/area from the 1950s. No one I've talked...

    Was that a punishment for you guys or something recruits had to do all the time?

    Thank you for this. Would a DI literally just be like "Stay off my fuc**** grass" as a general rule? I bet you all really hated those plants!!!
  15. Hoping that someone can explain these pictures of MCRD SD in the 50s

    Hello USMC Community,

    I'm researching boot camp at MCRD SD in the 1950s. My great uncle went through boot camp in 1951 and was killed in the Korean War that same year.

    I stumbled...

    That is so interesting! Did DIS ever refer to it as "God's Country" or was it a term recruits used?

    I have learned so much. Love this site. What an honor to be included as a non-Marine. I'm trying to write a screenplay based on my great uncle's life, hence my questions will probably seem random,...

    This is hysterical. Somehow this kind of detail hasn't made it into the official USMC training materials and memoirs that I've been reading :)
