Marine Corps

Civilian to Marine

From the Series Becoming a Soldier

What does it take to become a United States Marine? Kids will find out in this exciting look inside the U.S. Marine Corps' grueling, 13-week basic training program. Readers will learn all the details of boot camp from enlistment through graduation, including a look at "The Crucible," the 54-hour final test where recruits have to prove they’re worthy of the title "Marine" by completing a number of physical tasks. Kids will also meet real-life recruits like Steve Dellinger, who successfully completed the journey from civilian to marine in 2007. Combining large, full-color photos with a narrative format and controlled text, Marine Corps: Civilian to Mariill inspire young readers as they learn what it takes to become one of the world’s finest soldiers. It’s a must-have for readers beginning to have an interest in the military, as well as for kids with parents in military careers.
