PARRIS ISLAND, SC --
A native of Titusville, Florida, graduated from Marine Corps recruit training as a platoon honor graduate of Platoon 3056, Company K, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, Aug. 23, 2019.
Pfc. Daion ColemanPetite earned this distinction over 13 weeks of training by outperforming 49 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 about recruit training was bettering myself physically and the bond that you build with people from all over the world,” said ColemanPetite.
