Marine Corps Recruiting Command

MCRD Parris Island, S.C.
A native of Saluda, South Carolina, graduated from Marine Corps recruit training as the company honor graduate of Company L, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, Sept. 13, 2019.

Pfc. James F. Therrell earned this distinction over 13 weeks of training by outperforming 521 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’ve enjoyed the moments when the platoon has the opportunity to sit down and have core value discussions with our Senior Drill Instructor,” said Therrell.
After enjoying the 10 days of leave allotted to graduates of recruit training, Therrell will continue to build foundational Marine Corps skills at the School of Infantry, Camp Geiger, North Carolina.
