Recruit life is tough, very tough indeed. One goes from a life where shopping trips and other fun affairs are mainly dictated by the resources a person has, to one where every minute of their days is strictly scheduled and supervised. That’s life as a recruit now. Even though everyone knows that this is only temporary, the cultural shock could be such that people even forget how to do some shopping.

As anyone would expect, recruits are given opportunities to visit the recruit exchange a few times during recruit training. Of course, Drill Instructors are there to help, or “gently guide,” recruits during this process. In this video, U.S. Marine Recruits with Echo Company, 2nd Battalion, and with Oscar Company, 4th Battalion, Recruit Training Regiment, visit the recruit exchange at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, S.C. Curious? Just watch.
