As soon as he joins the Corps a Marine learns that his traditions are as much a part of his equipment as his pack or rifle. These traditions-loyalty to country and to Corps, self-sacrifice, devotion to duty, discipline and versa- tility, all of which are summed up in the phrase "ESPRlT DE CORPS"-make the Marines of today a brother in arms with the thousands of Marines who have preceded him. This reputation has been building ever since November 10, 1775, the day that the Continental Congress resolved that two battalions of Marines should be formed. From this moment on Marines have taken part in every action, large or small, in which the United States has been compelled to defend itself. The pageantry and world wide service of the Marine Corps is symbolized in its insignia-the globe, fouled anchor and surmounting eagle holding in its bill the motto of the Corps, "Semper Fidelis," or "Always Faithful." All Rights Reserved, ALBERT LOVE ENTERPRISES, INC., Doraville, Ge LEONARD F. CHAPMAN, JR. General, U. S. Marine Corps Commandant of the Marine Corps Message from the Cummandant . . . The rich traditions of the United States Marine Corps date back to 1775 when the Corps was established by the Continental Congress. Today the modern-Marine Corps is a team which operates on land, at sea, and in the air in keeping the peace throughout the world. As the Na- tion's amphibious force-in-readiness, the Corps is prepared to go wherever and whenever the national interests require. Throughout its proud history the ranks of the Marine Corps have been filled by the finest of young American manhood, men who have made the Corps one of the world's most re- spected military organizations. The name "Marine" has come to signify all that is finest in devotion to duty, courage, and versatility. As a Marine it will be your opportunity and privilege to share in and add to the great tradi- tions and the esprit de corps which are the hallmarks of the United States Marine Corps. And as a Marine you will gain in self-confidence and leadership while having the advantage of travel, adventure, and excellent training. Being a Marine will make you a better American, and you will know the special pride and satisfaction that comes only to those who have served their country as a U. S. Marine. 'L-Q H? Mission nt the United States Marine Corps THE MARINE CORPS shall be organized, trained, and equipped to provide fleet marine forces of combined arms, together with supporting air components, for service with the fleet in the seizure or defense of advanced naval bases and for the conduct of such land operations as may be essential to the prosecution of a naval campaign. lt shall be the duty of the Marine Corps to develop, in coordination with the Army and the Air Force, those phases of amphibious operations which pertain to the tactics, technique, and equipment employed by landing forces. In addition, the Marine Corps shall provide detachments and organizations for service on armed vessels of the Navy, shall provide security detachments for the protection of naval property at naval stations and bases, and shall perform such other duties as the President may direct: provided, that such additional duties shall not detract from or interfere with the operations for which the Marine Corps is primarily organized. The Marine Corps shall be responsible, in accordance with integrated joint mobilization plans, for the expansion of peacetime components of the Marine Corps to meet the needs o war.

History ni Parris Island Parris Island, home of basic training for today's Marines east of the Mississippi, has a colorful history. Although the first Marine Corps Ac- tivity on the island was in June, 1891, the story of its occupancy by the white man reaches back more than three centuries into antiquity. Covering approximately 7800 acres of land and water, Parris Island is located off the South Carolina coast about midway between Charleston, S. C., and Savannah, Ga. The site of the earliest attempt by Europeans to settle within the present boundaries of the State of South Carolina, the island was visited in 1526 by Valaquez de Alleyn who headed a Spanish expedition in search of slaves and gold. Probably the first European to land , 5' N C PM Wnwl' AQ? S I . -, I l .

An expedition of French Hugenots, under Jean Ribaut Csometimes spelled Ribaultj, landed here in April, 1562. Before returning to France, they established Charles Fort on what is now Parris Island. Historians are indebted to one member of this expedition in particular. He was a cartogra- pher of considerable ability named Lenoyne. One of his maps of the region firmly locates Charles Fort on Parris lsland. In 1663 William Hilton, of Barbades, rediscovered Charles Fort while exploring the newly-chartered province of Caro- lina. Today, the Ribaut Monument stands on the site of ancient Charles Fort to mark one of the first colonies estab- lished in the New World. In 1670 an English expedition arrived in the area and settled down to establish permanent towns and the first of the famed southern plantations. The Lord Proprietors of South Carolina passed the title to Parris Island down through several colonial settlers until Marine Corps Exchange Recruit Training Regiment Headquarters I ft' War Memorial Building 1715 when Alexander Parris, long time Public Treasurer of South Carolina, came into possession. The island's name dates back to him. MARINES LAND AT PARRIS ISLAND United States Marines were first connected with the island as early as 1861, when with a band of seamen, they took possession of it and nearby Forts Beauregard and Walker during the War Be- tween the States. The first Marine Corps activity was established on Parris Island on June 26, 1891, when a small detachment arrived with First Sergeant Richard Donovan, USMC, in charge, for duty in connection with the U. S. Naval Station, Port Royal, South Carolina, which was located on Parris Island. The detachment was highly commended for its service in preserving life and property during the hurricane and tidal wave which swept over the island in 1893. In 1909, a school for Marine officers was established here, and, in 1911, two recruit companies were established. One was trans- ferred to Charleston, S. C., and the other Norfolk, Va., during the latter part of the same year, and the buildings were used as Navy disciplinary barracks. On November 1, 1915, the area was again turned over to the Marine Corps, and recruit training reestablished. Parris Island has since become famous as a training base of U. S. Marines. During World War I, some 41,000 recruits were trained here. Prior to 1929, all transportation to and from the island was by small boats operating between the Post Docks and Port Royal, South Carolina. ln 1929, the "water era" came to an end with the com- pletion ofthe Horse Island bridge and causeway. PARRIS ISLAND AT WARTIME LEVELS ln August, 1940, recruit training was first organized on a battalion basis. With the coming of World War ll, a flood of recruits, as well as new permanent personnel to train them arrived aboard the island. The Base was enlarged to handle 13 recruit battalions, and, between 1941 and 1945, almost 205,000 recruits were trained at Parris Island. At the time of the Japanese surrender, there were more than 20,000 fledgling Marines in training at Parris Island. At the end of the war, the island was reduced to a population low by the rapid demobilization. Prior to the outbreak of the crisis in Korea, there were only two recruit battalions in training. At the start of the Korean Campaign, Parris Island's recruit population was barely 2,350. That figure swelled to a peak load of 24,424 recruits undergoing training in March of 1952. From the outset of the Korean Campaign to the withdrawal of the First Marine Division from Korea, more than 138,000 Marines received their recruit training at Parris Island. In September 1946, it was decided at Headquarters Marine Corps to reorganize the post at Parris Island in the interests of greater efficiency and economy of personnel and to give it a designation that would reflect its primary mission. At the direction of the Com- mandant, the Commanding General at Parris Island prepared plans and tables of organization to carry out the change, and after a preparatory transitional period the approved reorganization of- ficially went into effect. On December 1, 1946, the Marine Barracks, Farris Island, became the Marine Corps Rercruit Depot, Parris s an . . Headquarters and Service Battalion I .. . 1 ' -3. I I I ' WI' i.

Each recruit is fitted with utility coat, trousers, cap, "Skivvies," socks and field boots. Particular care is used in fitting the field boots on each recruit, and great emphasis is placed on care of feet. Because the recruit will spend many hours on the drill field, properly-fitted boots are a must. At the completion of this first uniform issue, the civilian clothing worn to the Recruit Depot by the new recruit is care- fully wrapped and mailed home. llllllal ISSUE QQ ? 'esv 1 ff Lf: Medical Examinations NEXT ON THE AGENDA for recruits comes a complete physical examination. These examinations help to insure the safety of the recruit during his rigid training. Teams of doctors and skilled technicians go over each man. Recruits are X-rayed and inoculated, and a careful case history obtained for his health record. The same meticulous care is given each recruit when he reaches the Dental Clinic. Treatment for proper care of the teeth begins immediately and continues until each defect is corrected. During the Eye Examination, each recruit is checked very closely. Those needing glasses are fitted immediately.

SNAPPING-IN, Marine terminology for "practice," be- gins with the first day at the rifle range and continues until record day. The four positions used by all Ma- rines in firing the range are uncomfortable and awk- ward at first. By record day, the daily "snapping-in" have given the recruit the techniques and trained his muscles so that he assumes the proper positions quick- ly and easily. His rifle seems as much a part of him and as familiar as his arms and legs-as though he was "born to it".

Various training aids or devices are used during the snapping-in period to teach the shooter the proper method of aiming and aligning his sights so his bullet will hit the bull's-eye. llarkmallsllim llistnl xi ,.,,4,,,,,,,,,g,H, A-fe :J J mi lls ar- I ,fi nos-En Lt PICIWE 1-,ei , :.

That long awaited day at the rifle range that determines how well the recruit has learned to use his rifle is also the day that will settle the friendly bets made on "who the best shooter is." As the recruits watch their buddies firing, they will make mental notes on each thing they have been taught and try to improve 'themselves right up to the time they squeeze that last shot. A recruit must live with his score, whatever it is, good or bad, because record day can only come once a year-and he will be proud or regretful of his score until he re- qualifies the next year. .

Mess Duty MESS DUTY is more or less a "necessary evil" in the opinion of most Marines. However, in reality it is an important phase of the normal daily routine of any military organization. Persons serving on mess duty can well say that they are contributing to the high morale of the unit, as well as performing an essential duty. ilksela.. . .,., E' , Hu ' fifgggrgmxw ' 5?

The American Spirit Honor Medal has been accepted by the Department of De- fense for use as an award to enlisted personnel who, while undergoing basic training, display outstanding qualities of leadership best expressing the American Spirit-Honor, Inititiative, Loyalty, and High Example to C omrades in Arms. This medallion has also been accepted by the Department of Defense for the promotion of closer ties between the Armed Services and Civil C ommanities of the continental United States in which the Armed Serv- ices establishments are located. EACH RECRUIT LOOKS FORWARD to graduation day and the awards presented during the ceremonies. Recruits are graded throughout training and those who have shown outstanding abilities may be selected for promotion to Private First Class. Not each man has the opportunity to be promoted. Promotions upon graduation are given to the top men in the platoon. Another phase which is highly competitive is on the rifle range. Each recruit looks forward to becoming a sharpshooter or expert so that he can receive his marksmanship badges upon graduation. SHOOTING MEDALS Graduation THE LONG AWAITED DAY, recruit training is over. At Final Review, all things pertaining to Recruit Training. have been completed. Re- cruits become full-fledge Marines, reaping the rewards of the past weks of intensive training. Some- times this goal may have seemed unattainable. But now as they stand at attention and think back over the trials and hardships they have overcome, they know why it had to be that way. Today they are Men. When the Drill instructor gets the command to dismiss the pla- toon, you know the big day is over: your first step has been completed. You know that you will leave Parris island as a United States Marine. From this day on you will always be a Marine, no matter where you go or what you do for you have EARNED that title.
