2018 Recruit Training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island
United States Marine Corps Recruit Training, commonly known as “boot camp”, is a 13-week program of initial training that each recruit must successfully complete in order to serve in the United States Marine Corps. All enlisted individuals entering the Marine Corps, regardless of eventual active or reserve duty status, will undergo recruit training at one of the two Marine Corps Recruit Depots (MCRD): Parris Island, South Carolina, or San Diego, California. Male recruits from the 8th, 9th and 12th recruiting districts (areas west of the Mississippi River except Louisiana, and including parts of Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Michigan) are sent to MCRD San Diego. All recruits from the 1st, 4th and 6th recruiting districts and all female recruits are sent to Parris Island. Those desiring to become officers attend training at Officer Candidates School at Marine Corps Base Quantico, VA. Footage from Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island.

Male recruits living east of the Mississippi River and female recruits from all over the United States report here to receive their initial training.
