PARRIS ISLAND, SC --
A native of Suwanee, GA, graduated from Marine Corps recruit training here as the platoon honor graduate of Platoon 1037, Company C, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, April 26, 2019.
Pfc. Jeremiah D. Carter 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 challenge and competition that comes from my fellow Marines,” said Carter.
After enjoying the 10 days of leave allotted to graduates of recruit training, Carter will continue to build foundational Marine Corps skills at the School of Infantry, Camp Geiger, North Carolina.
