    Four male platoons graduated from Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island in South Carolina as part of a battalion that -- until now -- has trained only women.
    Papa Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, completed boot camp with four male and two female platoons, the Marine Corps announced Wednesday. Coed companies have been training at Parris Island since 2019, but this was the first time men have been assigned to 4th Recruit Training Battalion.
    It was also the first time male drill instructors were assigned to the historically all-female battalion.

    Marine recruits training at Parris Island were for decades segregated by gender, with women traditionally assigned solely to 4th Recruit Training Battalion. Papa Company completed their training and graduated from boot camp March 26.

    The Marine Corps has since begun training Parris Island's 15th coed company, said Capt. Bryan McDonnell, a spokesman at the depot.
    Capt. Adan Rivera, the company commander, said in a Marine Corps news release that assigning men to 4th Battalion demonstrates that recruits are held to the same standards, regardless of gender.
    When a male recruit was told he'd be making history after being assigned to 4th Battalion, he said he didn't think "anybody grasped what was going on."
    "We're here to train, let's train," he said in the release.
    Both female and male recruits have now been assigned to all four of Parris Island's recruit training battalions.
    McDonnell said the 4th Recruit Training Battalion squad bay is smaller than some of the newer living facilities at Parris Island. The Marine Corps tends to see more recruits reporting to boot camp in the summer months following high school graduations. With fewer arriving in the winter months, McDonnell said they had the right number of male and female trainees to assign them to that battalion.
    Men and women training in coed companies live in the same barracks, but have separate squad bays with different sleeping and bathing facilities. Training that occurs outside the squad bays is done together.
    Platoons are still assigned drill instructors of the same gender as their recruits.
    The men with 4th Battalion aren't the only Marine recruits to make history at boot camp this year. Women are currently training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego in coed companies for the first time in that base's 100-year history.
    The 2020 defense authorization bill directed the Marine Corps to make both of its entry-level training sites coed. The service was given five years to make training coed at Parris Island and eight years at San Diego.

    Isn't that nice. There goes our Beloved Corps.

    Everything has a beginning and an end. Those of us who served before all this nonsense started will always remember the true spirit of the Corps.
    I think I would be happier if they had just disbanded the Corps entirely, instead of continuing to water it down with all this "feel good" bs.

    It's never a good idea to change something for no good reason, just to be changing it. It's actually very ignorant and shortsighted.

    It says that the Corps was "directed" to make it coed. Who would know what's best for the Corps besides the Corps? Defense department? Congress? Not likely .

    This Social Experiment will lead to disaster...

    Just another degradation of the Marines as we knew it...

    I fear the day will come when many young Marines will be lost. As tough as Parris Island was back in the day, I've often said it should have been at least 10X's harder because of where they sent us. Now, it appears to be 10X's less than then. S/F

    Imagine the faces on older USMC Vets when these youngsters talk about "I was in 4th Battalion" . We all know that Bn was only for women

    You've got that right SgtMaj. In the top photo those Marines sure look pretty in their blues. I could be wrong but someone told me Marines today are issued blues, I couldn't afford them back in the day.

    Billy, what irks me is that the Department of Defense originally wanted them to wear petticoats under the blues. Enough is enough.

    When I was at PI as y'all know we had a week I believe of guard duty. I was given prize duty of guarding the 4th Batt. Those DI's didn't know they had put the fox in the hen house. Of course I never saw any BAM's walking the streets back then so I had to go back to my platoon barracks still hungry, but later..........
