Overview

Marine Corps: Civilian to Marine by Meish Goldish

A line of Marine recruits, dressed in combat gear, hiked up a mountain. Their backs ached under the weight of their heavy packs. Their feet were sore and burned with blisters. Yet the sweaty hikers couldn't stop to rest. This march was a test to see if they were tough enough to become Marines.

This is just one of many demanding exercises that Marine recruits go through during boot camp. Look inside to learn more about what it takes for civilians to become Marines in the U.S. Marine Corps.
