Marine Corporal
Enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1979 arrived at beautiful sunny Parris Island, S.C. on 10/29/79 where I enjoyed the best three month vacation anyone could want. Included in this package were 3 meals per day, new clothing, footwear, & health & comfort items. Fun activities such as workout classes, swimming, marksmen ship, zip lines over beautiful ponds, climbing structures & of course repelling off of perfectly stable platforms for absolutely no reason. An in depth tour of the dining facilities with a behind the scenes look at how it all ran so smoothly. I highly recommend this vacation package to any & all young men & women on a low budget looking for a truly memorable vacation adventure. Stop by any local Marine vacation planner he/she will be happy to help.
