BOOT CAMP TRAINING CALENDAR
With our Yellow Footprints app, you can not only keep track of your favorite recruit’s daily activities you can also mail them a letter from the app itself using Mailcall for a nominal fee.
I developed the Yellow Footprints with a personal knowledge of Marine Corps recruit training. That is me on the left! I graduated with honors and was meritoriously promoted in 1992 graduating from Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego, Kilo Company, Platoon 3062. After 8 years in the Corps, I started my own web hosting company and through the last 2 decades have expanded into other development and hosting services.
With the Yellow Footprints app, each day your training schedule is loaded so you can keep track of your recruit. With that peace of mind you can also see how the training will develop your future Marine.
We’re currently providing Marine Corps calendars for enlisted Marines at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego and the Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island for the calendar years 2019-2020.
We will add 2021 and future years approximately 1 year in advance of the start of training.
By the numbers
We’ve collected the statistics for a general 1-year period of Marine Corps training in both recruit depots.
