Recruits are advised to report to training in much better shape, as the IST run is only half the distance Physical Fitness Test required of all recruits prior to graduation.Incentive Training in Marine Corps boot camp is common if they don’t meet standards for Marine Corps training.Grass Week is also called “snap in”. The recruits spend time practicing their firing positions, also called “snapping in”. In Marine Corps Basic Warrior Training, or BWT, recruits learn the fundamentals of combat; they sleep in the field and eat MRE’s. The Crucible is the defining moment of USMC bootcamp. Recruits will learn the standards required to pass the Crucible, they know how long the Marine Corps Crucible is and how to pass The Crucible.Marine Corps Emblem “EGA” Ceremony - The Eagle Globe and Anchor emblem is the symbol the embodies what sets Marines apart from other branches of service who delineate themselves by occupation specialty or demonstrate allegiance to a specific unit through the wearing of a patch or emblem.

During Phase 4, the new Marines begin to transition from their roles as recruits into that of United States Marines. During this phase new Marines now call their Drill Instructors by their rank. Instead of “Sir” or “Ma’am,” it is “Sgt” or “SSgt”. The Drill Instructors continue mentoring the new Marines by conducting discussion periods on critical topics that will help the new Marines to be successful in their transition to the operational forces.Battalion Commander’s Inspection in Marine Corps Recruit Training in 2019.The Battalion Commander’s Inspection is the final opportunity for the new Marines to be evaluated prior to graduation.

Family Day starts off with a motivational run, referred to as the “MOT Run” throughout the Depot.
