Graduating Boot Camp

We were the last group to go through boot camp on a 13 week training cycle. It was depressing to see training regiments start after us and finish before us. Anyway, here is the graduating pictures. I’ll have to dig up the list to put everyone’s name on the list.

“Ringside at Parris Island” by Lee Reynolds A fellow Marine, Lee Reynolds, published a book on Parris Island. It’s available on Amazon.com. The book is called “Ringside at Parris Island” by Lee Reynolds. Buy the book and help a fellow Marine. I met Lee in Shore Party and have some great stories that I know are not in the book.

 

 Still enjoying the memories, even though these guys screwed with me for four years, three months and 17 days out of my life.
