Here are just a couple of pictures of my trip. I hope to have the rest developed sometime soon.

Brother on the right. This was on the parade deck right after graduation.

I'm sure my mother would have some if I asked her (she's the blonde in the picture). I didn't keep any.

What ethnic group or nationality are you.

Irish, german... because I know you couldn't be of any mediterreanian group because you're blonde right?

How can some of the guys in that picture be lance corporals if they just graduated from Parris?

Some of them are Lance Corporals apon Graduation. I've even known of one graduate that was still a Private.

I was speaking to a friend of mine today at school and he said that when he graduates from Parris, he will graduate as a lance corporal because he has a friend already in the Corps. Is this possible?

Let's see. There are a couple ways.

A) You get 2 buds to sign up with you when you do, you automatically get a promotion (to PFC).
B) You probably have attended JROTC programs in high school, etc. and sometimes through this *if you are a very distinguished cadet* you can receive a promotion, if you stuck around all four years.
C) You did a fuck of a job in Boot and became the distinguished Recruit in your Platoon and you can be upped that way, if the SDI believes you are ready for that challenge.
