What my son experienced
15 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not a Marine. I was in the Air Force 35 years ago. The first moments of this documentary brought me back to my first few hours basic training with all of the confusion, fear and yelling. However the Marines have the toughest boot camp of any branch of the military and after the first few moments, my memories faded and I watched what my son went through last year to become a U.S. Marine. Poignant, funny, frightening and ultimately triumphant, this video is a must for anyone who has been in the service, is contemplating going into the service or just wants to understand the journey a young man takes to become a Marine.

Everything the DIs do is for a reason; though to the recruits, it doesn't seem like it. This documentary catches the day-to-day training and teaching that goes on.

It shows the recruits at their worst, and at their best, as they try to navigate the course from civilian to Marine. It captures the DIs too in moments where they are "off," talking among themselves to watch a recruit in need as well as when they are on, screaming to the point of incomprehension, trying to get a recruit to learn. This video is well worth the time to watch, if for no other reason than to understand where a Marine comes from. The only fault I had with this was in not identifying the different recruits and what they were in the platoon. That aside, an extraordinary look at MCRD San Diego.
