I spent eight years of my life serving in the United States Marine Corps. This video gives you a glimpse of what life is like from the time a recruit arrives either at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Paris Island, South Carolina or Marine Corps Recruit Depot, San Diego, California. The recruit is quickly indoctrinated and stripped of individuality for the benefit of the recruit, brotherhood of the Marine Corps and our nation. We put God, country and Marine Corps first before ourselves.
As a Marine, we are first of all branches of the United States military to fight in any conflict. During World War I, the Marines were given the nick name Devil Dog by a German soldier on his dying breath because we fight like fierce dogs. During World War II, the Japanese thought that Marines were a bunch of lunatics and escaped convicts.
