THE MENTAL AND MORAL QUALITIES ofthe United
States Marine have been tested constantly since the birth of
the nation. All through the long history of the Marine Corps
there are examples, both in war and peace, of his versatility,
trustworthiness, singleness and tenacity of purpose, cour-
age, faithfulness and self-sacrifice.
The rich tradition of the Corps dates back to November
10, 1775, when it was established by the Contintental Con-
gress. In the Revolutionary War, the Marines fought against
the British Fleet on the ships of john Paul jones, and made
their first amphibious landing on the beaches of the Baha-
mas in 1776. Marines ended their war with the Mediterra-
nean pirates when they planted the Stars and Stripes over
the pirate stronghold of Derne, in Tripoli, after a six-
hundred-mile march across the desert of North Africa. In
the War of 1812, they fought on Lake Champlain and Lake
Erie, and were with General jackson behind the barricades
at New Orleans.
They defeated the Seminole Indians in the dense swamps
of Florida in 1836, and fought under General Scott in the
Mexican War of 1846-48. Their first visit to japan came in
1854 as guard detachments from the ships of Commodore
Perryis fleet. Under the command of Colonel Robert E. Lee,
U.S.A., Marines captured john Brown at Harperis Ferry in
They fought savages in Formosa in 1867, and stormed the
barrier forts of Korea in 1871. During the Spanish-American
War, a single battalion of Marines held the naval base at
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, against 6,000 Spaniards, while oth-
er Leathernecks distinguished themselves at the Battle of
Santiago and with Dewey at Manila. They helped quell the
Boxer Rebellion in China in 1900, and from then on until
World War I, men of the Corps campaigned in the Philip-
pines, Cuba, Mexico, Haiti, and Santo Domingo to protect
American lives and property.
On the battlefields of France, Marines were called N Devil
Dogsu by the Germans because of their courage and tenaci-
ty of attack. In the first World War, the Fourth Brigade of
Marines took part in five operations as part of the famed
Second Division of the A.E. F. - Belleau Wood, Soissons,
St. Mihiel, Chapagne, and the Meuse-Argonne. Marine units
were decorated six times by the French during these
The interim between world wars found the Marines en-
gaged in developing the technique of amphibious warfare
and in their traditional pursuits around the globe, from
guarding the U. S. mails to fighting bandits in Nicaragua.
World War II saw the men who wear the eagle, globe, and
an anchor valiantly defend Wake Island and Bataan and
then spearhead the amphibious landings across the Pacific
in the Solomons, at Tarawa, Saipan, Guam, Iwo Jima,
and Okinawa, to name a few. Following the war, Marines
found a new type of service - duty with United Nations
Forces in Korea.
The United States Marine Corps, rich in tradition and
world-famed for its battle record and esprit de corps, plays
an important role as the nation's uforce-in-readinessn to
help keep the peace throughout the world today.

Parris Island, home of basic training for today's Ma-
rines east ofthe Mississippi, has a colorful history. Al-
though the first Marine Corps Activity on the island
was in june, 1891, the story of its occupancy by Euro-
peans reaches back more than three centuries into
Covering approximately 7800 acres of land and wa-
ter, Parris Island is located off the South Carolina
coast about midway between Charleston, S.C., and
The site ofthe earliest attempt by Europeans to set-
tle within the present boundaries of the State of South
Carolina, the island was visited in l526 by Valaquez de
Alleyn who headed a Spanish expedition in search of
slaves and gold.
Probably the first European to land here, he named
adjacent St. Helena Island and claimed it for Spain
some 50 years before the French attempted to colonize
the islands which included this Marine Corps Recruit

lsometimes spelled Ribaultl. 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 Lenovne. One of his
maps ofthe region firmly locates Charles Fort on Parris
In 1663 William Hilton, of Barbades, rediscovered
Charles Fort while exploring the newly-chartered province
of Carolina. Today, the Ribaut Monument stands on the site
of ancient Charles Fort to mark one ofthe first colonies es-
tablished in the New VVorld,
Ln 1670 an English expedition arrived in the area and set-

Parris Island down through several colonial settlers until
1715, when Alexander Parris, long time Public Treasurer of
South Carolina, came into possession. The islandis name
dates back to him.

MARINES LAND AT PAFIRIS ISLAND
United States Marines were first connected with the is-
land as early as 1861, when with a band of seamen, they took
possession of it and nearby Forts Beauregard and Walker
during the War Between 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, USM C, 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 pre-
serving 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 transferred to Charleston, C., and the other Norfolk,
Va., during the latter part of the same year, and the build-
ings 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 Wlar I, some 41,000 recruits were
Prior to 1929, all transportation to and from the island was
by small boats operating between the Post Docks and Port
Royal, South Carolina. In 1929, the Hwater eral, came to an
end with the completion of the Horse Island bridge and
PARRIS ISLAND AT WARTIME LEVELS
In August, 1940, recruit training was first organized on a
battalion basis. With the coming of World War II, a flood of
recruits, as well as new permanent personnel to train them
arrived aboard the island.
The Base,,,wvas 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 surren-
der, there were more than 20,000 fledgling Marines in train-
ing at Parris Island.
At the end of the war, the island was reduced to a popula-
tion low by the rapid demobilization. Prior to the outbreak
of the crisis in Korea, there were only two recruit battalions
At the start of the Korean Campaign, Parris Islandls rc-
cniit 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 with-
drawal of the First Marine Division from Korea, more than
138,000 Marines received their recruit training at Parris
In September 1946, it was decided at Headquarters Ma-
rine Corps to reorganize the post at Parris Island in the in-
terests of greater efficiency and economy of personnel and
to give it a designation that would reflect its primary mis-
sion. At the direction of the Commandant, the Commanding
General at Parris Island prepared plans and tables of organi-
zation to carry out the change, and after a preparatory tran-
sitional period the approved reorganization officially went
into effect. On December 1, 1946, the Marine Barracks, Par-
ris Island, became the Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris

On May 4, 1956, the Recruit Training Command was orga-
nized under the direction of Brigadier General Wallace M.
Greene, Jr. In April, 1958, this unit was re-designated the
Recruit Training Regiment. It controls all activities dealing
with the training of male recruits.
The Recruit Training Regiment is composed of the First,
Second and Third Recruit Training Battalions, and Weapons
On February 15, 1949, a separate battalion was activated
for the sole purpose of training Women Marine recruits. This
battalion has since been designated Women Marine Recruit
Training Battalion and is the only such battalion in existence.
All support units and schools come under the command of
Headquarters and Service Battalion.
In addition to recruit training Parris Island has a Drill
Instructors School and Field Music School.
Parris Island's progress has been chiefly along military lines
but, in keeping pace with advances in the art of training
recruits, the island has grown from a desolate stretch of waste-
land to one of the most efficient and picturesque military
reservations in the world.
Today the Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island,
South Carolina, stands proud of its heritage, pleased with its
accomplishments and responsive to the challenges of the fu-
