Power outage

Recruit family and friends, don’t be alarmed for the power outage in San Diego. Your recruits will continue to train to their fullest capability with the assistance of their drill instructors.

One thing the Marines are good at is accountability. No man (or recruit) will go left behind.

At the beginning of training, they were taught to count off. This consists of them standing on line in front of their racks (beds) or in formation and count out loud consecutively then snapping their heads to the left.

Accountability is taken many, many times throughout the day. You can rest assured that your recruit is safe.

P.S. – they spent the last hours of day light practicing drill. Time well spent if you’d ask me.
