Cael, the United States Marine Corps bootcamp graduate and Casey
Cael marching with his platoon at bootcamp graduation practice
I think the guy's faces on this one look like a Norman Rockwell painting. This is how they ended the EGA (Eagle, Globe & Anchor) ceremony.... singing the Marine Hymn. It was incredible! (Cael is in the back row, near the center of the photo.)
The Guideon passes with the platoon flag: 1st Battalion, Delta Co., Plt. 1009 - Again, back row just about center.
My favorite shot. A graduation moment... most handsome Marine on the parade deck!
This Marine has become one of the newest members to earn a spot in the RIP (Recon Indoc Platoon) after passing a gruelling swimming and physical endurance test. He was one of only 4 out of 50 to make it. It is his goal to be a Recon Marine! Congrats to Cael on making it through bootcamp and now this first hurdle toward Recon!
