NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA NATIVE GRADUATES MARINE RECRUIT TRAINING WITH HONORS

16 Aug 2019 | Cpl. Erin R. Ramsay 6th Marine Corps District

A native of New Orleans, Louisiana, graduated from Marine Corps recruit training as a platoon honor graduate of Platoon 2058, Company F, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, Aug. 16, 2019.

Pfc. JC Coker III earned this distinction over 13 weeks of training by outperforming 45 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.

The best part of recruit training was the individual competition and the leadership experience of being the guide for a diverse group of people,” said Coker.

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