Proudly Serving Part Four: Graduation

Posted: Updated:

It's the day every recruit looks forward to, the day they graduate as a marine. And their pride is not only seen in their eyes, but in their parent's as well.

The celebration of their efforts starts with a graduation run the day before followed by a Color Ceremony. Once the recruits have made their way to the parade deck, the drill instructors dismiss their platoons.

Out rush friends and family to greet the new marines after not seeing each other for three months. That overpowering sense of pride could be felt from the new grads and their parents.

When they first come back to their recruiters office, it can be seen that they truly are a marine. They stand taller and their confidence is just through the roof.

As marines now,  they will continue their training with their military occupational specialties. There are over 300 military occupations available in the Marine Corps.
