After a week of in-processing, recruits have “pickup” day, their introduction to their drill instructors. During this event drill instructors recite the Drill Instructor Creed, a vow to professionally train the recruits to the best of their ability. Following the creed, recruits are given their first set of orders through a chaotic gear inspection. The intensity of the gear inspection is designed to set the tone for the remaining 12 weeks of training. — in Company I Pick - Up - 12/22/14.

enbdevildog22 #tbt to one of the greatest days of my life. Boot camp wasn't so much physically challenging as it was mentally. Getting thrashed everyday definitely helped forge me into the person I am today. #bootcampgraduation #usmc #marines #sandiego #devildogs #yellowfootprints 1w

Normal Evansville Bootcamp
tonymaslan On this day in history: Since Dec. 15th is my oldest son's birthday, that is my primary focus of that day each year. That date is significant to me for other reasons as well. On December 15, 2003 my oldest son was born. On December 15, 2001 I started dating my future wife.
On December 15, 1998 I received this Gideon's New Testament Bible when I checked in at the Louisville MEPs station. Some time on December 16, 1998 I stood on the yellow footprints at Parris Island and began my journey to becoming a United States Marine.
I read that entire bible during bootcamp, much if it at night by the light of a street lamp outside of my barracks window.
I carried that bible with me every day I was in Iraq, in a pocket between my heart and the Eagle, Globe and Anchor on that pocket.
I still often carry that bible with me.
My life has many blessings and I am very thankful.
And now you know, some more of the story. #usmc #yellowfootprints

jaded_az_jai I have had VERY few role models growing up but one day at the age of 8 I saw a female Marine (now SgtMajor Fortner) home on boot leave and it changed my life. I have had some truly #amazing #womanwarriors from other branches and #femaleMarines giving me guidance and leadership ever I stepped on those #yellowfootprints. earlier this month I got to be on the #exclusive list of invites for the Promotion of @rondahartporter to thank of Sergeant Major. I think it changed my life. She's been a blessing in my life since I've known her and her leadership style is one of a kind. You do not find genuine people like her anymore. I could be more proud of anyone and it reaffirmed my position and next moves in this organization. PS you know you bad when the former SgtMaj of the Marine Corps comes to pin you on... that's good company. #Marines #USMC #MCRDSD #SgtMaj #EarnedNeverGiven #MilitaryWomen #Inspired #SemperFidelis #MarinesWest #12MCD 2w
