MARINE CORPS RECRUIT DEPOT PARRIS ISLAND, S.C. – A native of Blythwood, South Carolina, graduated from Marine Corps recruit training here as a platoon honor graduate of Platoon 1024, Company B, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, April 05, 2019.

Pfc. Nasier I. Taylor earned this distinction over 13 weeks of training by outperforming 36 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 the strong bond that I’ve made with all of my fellow Marines,” said Taylor, an alumnus of the Citadel.

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