~The FReeper Canteen Presents~

Road Trip: Marine Corps Recruit Depot, San Diego, California

Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego is a United States Marine Corps military installation in San Diego, California. It lies between San Diego Bay and Interstate 5, adjacent to Lindbergh Field and the former Naval Training Center San Diego.

MCRD San Diego's main mission is the initial training of enlisted male recruits living west of the Mississippi River. Over 21,000 recruits are trained each year. The Depot also is the home to the Marine Corps' Recruiter School and Western Recruiting Region's Drill Instructors School.

 

Recruit training for those enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, also referred to as boot camp, includes a thirteen week process during which the recruit becomes cut off from the civilian world and must adapt to a Marine Corps lifestyle.

During training, the drill instructors train recruits in a wide variety of subjects including weapons training, Marine Corps Martial Arts Program, personal hygiene and cleanliness, close order drill, and Marine Corps history. The training emphasizes physical fitness and recruits must attain a minimum standard of fitness to graduate.

 This standard includes a Physical Fitness Test. Recruits must also meet minimum combat-oriented swimming qualifications, qualify in rifle marksmanship with the M16A2 service rifle.



Unlike training at Parris Island, recruits must leave the depot to conduct field training. The second three-week phase is spent at Edson Range aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, where recruits fire on the rifle range. At the conclusion, recruits return to San Diego, but will return at the end of recruit training for the 56-hour "culminating" event called The Crucible.

The Marine Corps Recruit Depot Command Museum boasts one of the most extensive and comprehensive displays of Marine Corps historical items in the Nation. The Museum has over 150,000 annual visitors and occupies 22,233 square feet of indoor space.

The Mission at the MCRD Command Museum is “To provide an educational setting that portrays the legacy of the Marine Corps for the training of recruits and the continuing education of Marines, that functions as a supporting arm to the recruiting effort, and that serves as a bridge to the civilian community.”

LOL! I did the same thing I’ve been doing every day. Make a short count and back out. I tried earlier to back out right away and it didn’t post at all. Oh well.

Back later...my computer is shutting down.

REST IN PEACE, FALLEN BROTHER!

Flowers of the Forest



Black Watch Piper

THE SOLDIER

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is forever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam;
A body of England's, breathing English air,
Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.
And think, this heart, all evil shed away,
A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;
Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;
And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,
In hearts at peace, under an English heaven.

Rupert Brooke

Been there, done that, and earned the title December 20, 1974.

That sounds like a really long time ago. Probably because it is.

Oorah!

More And More

November 27, 2012

A rallying cry often heard today in our economically challenged world is “Less and less.” Governments are called to balance their budgets. People are urged to use less energy and decrease consumption of limited resources. It is good advice that we should all heed. In the realm of faith, however, there are no shortages of love and grace and strength. Therefore, as followers of Christ, we are urged to demonstrate His love in our lives in ever-increasing measure.

In the apostle Paul’s first letter to the believers in Thessalonica, he urged them to “abound more and more” in a lifestyle that pleases God (4:1). He also commended them for their demonstration of love for each other, and called them to “increase more and more” in brotherly love (v.10).

That kind of ever-increasing love is possible only because it comes from God’s limitless resources, not from our own dwindling supply. Poet Annie Johnson Flint wrote:

His love has no limit, His grace has no measure,
His power has no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus,
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again.

The apostle Paul expressed his desire for the believers: “May the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all, just as we do to you” (1 Thess. 3:12).

How much should we love God and others? More and more!

Our limited ability to love does not change God’s limitless power to love through us.

Read: 1 Thessalonians 3:12–4:10

May the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all, just as we do to you. —1 Thessalonians 3:12
Bible in a Year:
2 Corinthians 1-3
