MARINE CORPS RECRUIT DEPOT PARRIS ISLAND, S.C. – A native of Spring Hill, Florida, graduated from Marine Corps recruit training here as company honor graduate of Company O, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, September 20, 2019.


Pfc. Jenna Barbee earned this distinction over 13 weeks of training by outperforming 96 other recruits during a series of training events designed to test recruits’ basic Marine Corps skills.

These training events covered customs and courtesies, drill and ceremonies, marksmanship, physical fitness, military history, and a variety of other subjects.

“My favorite part of recruit training is everyone giving their very best at all times,” said Barbee.

After enjoying the 10 days of leave allotted to graduates of recruit training, Barbee will continue to build foundational Marine Corps skills at the School of Infantry, Camp Geiger, North Carolina.
