Young Marines graduate and take to the fields

Date Posted: 1998-06-27

New graduates from Camp Kinser and Foster Young Marines Recruit Training take to the field this week after several weeks of intensive and motivational training. Recruits were trained for several months on what it takes to be a Marine.

The Young Marines of Okinawa is a non profit organization that molds children between the ages of 8 through high school into Young Marines. Run completely by senior Young Marines and adult volunteers, the programs strives to instill a sense of fairness, courage, respect, loyalty, dependability, attention to duty, love of God and fidelity to their country. This is done through an extensive boot camp that the kids attend every Saturday for several weeks.

This week, amid a few tears and a lot of cheers, approximately 70 new recruit graduates departed for Summer Camp 98. These kids are spending a week in the fields at Camp Hansen, giving them the chance to put their newly acquired skills to use.

GySgt Charles Dudley, who heads the Camp Kinser Young Marines, says this years camp is going to be great. The kids will be able to participate in everything from repelling, swimming, cooking, map reading, laundry, and orientation to Marine Units and what they do. The kids will live in tents and rough it during the six day camp that is sure to be an experience that the children will never forget.
