    MARINE CORPS RECRUIT DEPOT PARRIS ISLAND, S.C. – A native of Jupiter, Florida, graduated from Marine Corps recruit training here as honor graduate of Platoon 3002, Company L, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, Jan. 25, 2019.

    Pfc. Cameron J. Banegas earned this distinction over 13 weeks of training by outperforming 81 other recruits during a series of training events designed to test recruits’ basic Marine Corps skills.
    These training events covered customs and courtesies, drill and ceremonies, marksmanship, physical fitness, military history, and a variety of other subjects, which orient them to military service and the Marine Corps.

    Banegas said his favorite part of recruit training was the confidence course. During this course, recruits scale a 30-foot wooden structure, slide across a 90-foot rope that's suspended approximately 50-feet over a man-made pond, and complete a variety of other obstacles that require teamwork, courage, and self-confidence.

    “I enjoyed the Confidence Couse due to the fact that it presented a challenge to all recruits, whether it’s physical or mental,” said Banegas, a graduate of Jupiter High School.

    After enjoying the 10 days of leave allotted to graduates of recruit training, Banegas will continue to build foundational Marine Corps skills at the School of Infantry, Camp Geiger, North Carolina.
