Phoenix pool function in Gilbert, Ariz., March 2, 2013. The purpose of the function is to screen and physically test the Marine enlistees, while in addition give them a preview of what they may be able expect once they ship off to Marine Corps boot camp. Purtell, a Chicago native and prior Marine Corps drill instructor, explained to the enlistees that it is pivotal they work together and maintain a positive attitude during recruit training. More than 400 Marine Corps enlistees and their family and friends from across the state of Arizona participated in the daylong event. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl. Tyler J. Bolken)
