Panama City, Fla., native training at Parris Island to become U.S. Marine

Rct. Christopher McCall, a 19-year-old native of Panama City, Fla., is currently training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, S.C., in hopes of earning the title of United States Marine. McCall is training with Platoon 2074, Echo Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, and is scheduled to graduate Oct. 3, 2014. “It’s been a life dream of mine. I want to lead Marines,” said McCall, a 2013 graduate of A. Crawford Mosely High School in Panama City, Fla. Approximately 20,000 recruits come to Parris Island annually for the chance to become United States Marines by enduring 13 weeks of rigorous, transformative training. Parris Island is home to entry-level enlisted training for 50 percent of males and 100 percent for females in the Marine Corps. (Photo by Lance Cpl. David Bessey)
