Marine Corps recruits with India Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, complete the arduous, exhausting Crucible at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island ... and proudly receive their Eagle, Globe, and Anchor pin .... earning the title of ... Marine ... in March 2019.
The Crucible is a test every recruit must go through to become a Marine. It tests every recruit physically, mentally and morally and is the defining experience of recruit training. The Crucible takes place over 54-hours and includes food and sleep deprivation and over 45 miles of marching. The Crucible event pits teams of recruits against a barrage of day and night events requiring every recruit to work together to solve problems, overcome obstacles, and help each other along the way.
