Marine Training for Those Interested


It's a weekend of boot camp for future Marines at Camp Clark, Nevada.

The purpose is so recruits get the real experience of Marine boot camp. All weekend long recruits test their skills on combat simulators, leadership reactions course and combat fitness programs. They'll also eat meals ready to eat, the same food soldiers eat when at war.

Three women were among the 500 participants.

Marine Sergeants from across the county attended to educate the potential soldiers on what it takes to be a marine

"This is to give them a taste and let them know this is what you signed up and this is what it's about the reason for this is to prepare them actually its not to scare them or run them away this is to say listen this is the first step to so many opportunities you are going to get in your life" says Staff Sgt.. Giovani Dominguez.
