Marine Corps Boot Camp 2016

This year, several cadets gave up their spring break to participate in the second annual Marine Corps Boot Camp trip for our unit. JRHS cadets were joined by cadets from Patrick Henry, Lee-Davis, and Henrico High Schools for a week at the Parris Island Recruit Training facility in Parris Island, South Carolina. In addition to being yelled at by Marine Drill Instructors from 0400 through the rest of the day while doing PT and marching, cadets also participated in an obstacle course, climbed up and down a rappel tower and much more. The experience gives the cadets a small taste of the life of a Marine recruit and hopefully instills a sense of confidence and purpose that they can bring back to our unit.
