Being a marine recruit is hard work. You’ve got to wake up early, you’ve got to do a lot of running, you’ve got to learn (and remember) a lot of information. Only the strongest of the bunch survive there, and it weeds out all but the most determined recruits.
A new marine recruit is faced with many challenges. The first set of training can indeed be very challenging and can be a defining moment in the lives of marine recruits, who are just hitting their stride in the service.
