My parents are friends with a retired Marine. He and his wife are taking them to Parris Island tomorrow. I bet that's going to be so cool..i'd love to see something like that!

My nephew did his boot camp there last year. He loved boot camp, he now hates the Marines. I just hope he gets something out of being in the military. He is going to be deployed in May. :(

Loved boot camp? I don't think i've ever heard that before =)

My only knowledge of Marines comes from my addiction to NCIS, so it's probably not accurate.. but tell your nephew he could be the next Denozzo if he wants =)

My brother went through boot at Parris Island. He was one of the very few guys that actually gained weight in boot. He went there looking like a soft mama's boy and came out a MARINE. My sister and I literally did not recognize him after he graduated boot, he had changed so much - and for the better.

Yep, he is very fit. He was a CC runner in HS and a wrestler. He said the yelling didn't bother him.

My grandfather was a rifle instructor at Parris Island long ago. My mom has good memories of living there as a little kid. I'd love to visit someday.

I come from a family of three generations of Marines.
