I didn't see 2nd BN's, that why I wasn't sure if 1st and 2nd shared or not....thanks BR. I did see 3rd's, but didn't get to take a pic of it. After we got my nephew's gear, we went looking for the "receiving building where the famous yellow footprints are" so we could get pics taken before it rained.
My brother, who went through boot camp back in 1969, was suprised to still see the steam pipes there.

I always wondered why 4th Bn's everything was so much better than everything else. Like the track...wtf is a track we had dirt and the squadbays.

PFC, 4th BN has squad bays also. It's not no hotel over there were we all have separate rooms. The females don't live the life of luxury over there either.
I don't know when they put the track in, wasn't there when I was there in 1988, but that track is also open to the public, that is when the females aren't there. Also, the confidence course wasn't as nice as it is today, and it was in a different area. When I was there, that was our PT area. 4th BN's parade deck is about 1/4 the size of the main parade deck that the males use.
So don't think that the females have everything better than the males do, because we don't.

Thanks Marines. I really appreciate the answers to my questions, it helped out alot. I have my little bag already packed with only the necessities. I understand that I am going to Parris Island to become a MARINE and not for a beauty pageant. I just wanted to bring the right things and now I will. Thank you again Marines. Merry Late Christmas and I hope you have a wonderful New Year's Celebration!!

As long has you don't shave it in the form of an Eagle, Globe, and Anchor, you should be fine.

I weep for what this country is becoming, and fear for my children and grandchildren's future if any more democrats gain national office. We lose more and more freedoms every single day to creeping nannystatism and those who vote for Democrats only want to increase that. Anyone voting for a 'dem' is someone who likely wants to take everything YOU have worked for and mortgage your kids future as well.
