Marines answer families’ questions as recruits prepare for boot camp

Master Sgt. Rick St. John welcomed the families of poolees, the men and women who have have enlisted in the marine Corps but have not yet started boot camp, from Clermont, Hamilton, and Brown Counties to an information session Friday night.

The annual Family Night is an opportunity for parents to meet several current and former Marines and learn just what their son or daughter can expect in boot camp and beyond.

“Tonight is an opportunity to inform parents about the decision their son or daughter has made,” St. John said.
