23 Aug 2019 | Cpl. Erin R. Ramsay 10th Marine Regiment

A native of Plaquemine, Louisiana, graduated from Marine Corps recruit training as a platoon honor graduate of Platoon 3058, Company K, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, Aug. 23, 2019.

Pfc. Skyler Dozier earned this distinction over 13 weeks of training by outperforming 50 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.

I liked creating a bond with the other recruits and forming friendships,” said Dozier.

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