Making the Corps: 61 Men Came to Parris Island to Become Marines
Thomas E. Ricks (au). Acclaimed military journalist Ricks visits boot camp, Parris Island, SC, where old values are stripped away & new, Marine Corps values, forged. He follows 63 raw recruits, the men of recruit platoon 3086, from their hometowns to Parris Island, through boot camp, & into their first year as Marines. As 3 fierce drill instructors fight a battle for the hearts & minds of this unforgettable group of young men, a larger picture emerges, brilliantly painted, of the growing gulf that divided the military from the rest of America. Ricks captures the essence of this legendary organization. An insightful portrayal of the culture of the American military, as exemplified in the Marines. Selected for the official Marine Corps Reading List.
