Graduation Activities and Events
Welcome Marine Corps Family and Friends!
We encourage you to check this website regularly for up to date information on graduation week activities and events. During the days leading up to graduation, you will have the opportunity to meet your new Marine’s Drill Instructor, discover the history and culture of the Marine Corps, spend time with your Marine, and learn what happens “Beyond the Yellow Footprints.”
What these young men experience at MCRD San Diego during recruit training changes them forever. Thank you for your support to them throughout this process. It is with great pleasure and pride that we welcome you to the United States Marine Corps family, and we look forward to seeing you and sharing the joy and celebration of graduation with you.
