How Coronavirus Is Changing Marine Corps Boot Camp

The COVID-19 crisis is changing the way future United States Marines are trained at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in Parris Island, SC. According to anonymous defense officials who spoke to the Washington Post, between 20 to 50 positive cases have been confirmed at the Depot.
According to a Recruit Depot spokesperson, some of the cases were discovered in the recruit population. Beginning March 30, the Recruit Depot suspended the shipping of new recruits to Parris Island. When shipping resumes, new recruits will be held in a 14-day "staging" period before they begin processing ahead of training. These recruits will be medically screened multiple times per day. Due to the crisis, physical distancing measures are being implemented in dining facilities and "squad bays" where recruits sleep
However, training will continue for recruits already in Parris Island, with physical distancing measures being implemented at the discretion of the drill instructors. Although graduations will continue to occur, visitors are prohibited from attending. Upon graduation, new Marines will continue to ship out to the training that occurs on other bases after they leave Parris Island.

  • Its kind of concerning that they say the instructors use discretion. Marines are not known to be intelligent. Trust me. I was in the Marines.

  • I was in Kilo Company graduated April 3th 2020. Our company was the first one to be affected by covid 19, it was the first one without a family day, our motto run was empty no families and our graduation no families came and we didn’t get our 10 days leave.

  • It’s crazy how this virus is affecting everyone. I can’t even see my boyfriend graduate from boot camp and he’s not allowed to come back home for 10 days since he lives in New York. It sucks but non the less I know he wanted this and I’m so proud of him.

  • Great Video. United States Marine Corps Recruit Training, commonly known as "boot camp", is a 13-week program of initial training that each recruit must successfully complete in order to serve in the United States Marine Corps. All enlisted individuals entering the Marine Corps, regardless of eventual active or reserve duty status, will undergo recruit training at one of the two Marine Corps Recruit Depots.

  • Just got out last month. Got there March 9th and was considered "dirty Alpha" lmao it was fun. Marching in 2 ranks was weird but we were the last Company that didn't have any positive covid cases. It sucked that we didn't have pugle stick 2, initial drill, and final drill tho. Family day and Graduation was depressing but hey, we can't complain. Always for the Corps.

They are using the Corona virus as the distraction for 5g towers which are the real problems that are causing death, No wonder they put the 5g towers first in china to make no difference in the death statistics but they have already been cought.. just fo the research, also go watch Geoshifter about the corona virus hoax of 2020. Highly Recomend

  • Nothing crazy gonna happen. The only change they made is that they increase bootcamp duration from 13 weeks to 15 weeks to make sure people are not sick before sending them to pt together. Of course keeping distance and wash your hands is important and thats a personal responsibilities everyone gotta take. Damn the news for exaggerating so much on the virus smh

  • These young, fit, medically cleared recruits are possibly the absolute safest individuals when it comes to COVID-19, a disease that kills old, unhealthy people who've been eating, smoking, and/or drinking too much for decades. Don't compromise military readiness to protect them from a disease that is absolutely harmless to them.

CHILLI MAC, MARINE!!!!!!" DI: "Why are you ordering chow, recruit? You aren't even in the mess hall yet!!! Are you impatient? Are you hungry?" Marine: "Hey, whats even going on over there? That recruit is getting his ass chewed out. Why don't he just come in and get some chow?" Marine2: "Social distancing I guess"

Fun fact- I was sent to boot camp at PI on the first planes that were flying after 9/11. I got to PI ON 9/13-14/2001. 3rd battalion Lima “Strength and Discipline” 😎😂. Good times actually.
