Young Marines Graduation
On August 5th, the Young Marines program hosted a class graduation for their Pride Platoons.
The Young Marines is open to all youth ages 8 through the completion of high school. Upon joining a local Young Marine unit, youth undergo a 26-hour orientation program, generally spread out over several weekly meetings. This orientation is called Recruit Training. The youth learn general subjects such as history, customs and courtesies, close order drill, physical fitness, and military rank structure. After graduating from Young Marine Recruit Training, the youth can learn even more new skills, earn rank, wear the Young Marine uniform and work toward ribbon awards.
We are extremely proud of our Rialto Young Marines and hope we can inspire others to sign up for this excellent program. To become a Young Marine, all youth members must complete Recruit Training. Recruit Training is designed to teach the recruits the basics of what it means to be a Young Marine. To show your interest, click here.
