VIDEO: The Yellow Footprints

The Yellow Footprints is the introduction of recruits to Marine Boot Camp. Upon exiting the bus on the Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego, recruits receive a brief on how to stand at the position of attention, the difference between civilian laws and the Uniform Code of Military Justice, and what it means to be a Marine.

WGN Radio was given behind-the-scenes access to Marine Boot Camp as part of the Midwest Marines Educator Workshop. Join WGN Radio in celebrating Memorial Day and watch the entire Marine Week series at
