19 Apr 2019 | Cpl. Jack A. Rigsby 6th Marine Corps District

A native of Lafayette, Louisiana, graduated from Marine Corps recruit training here as a platoon honor graduate of Platoon 3025, Company K, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, April 19, 2019.

Pfc. James C. Williams earned this distinction over 13 weeks of training by outperforming 37 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 Williams.

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