Marine Corps boot camps are intense high pressure affairs where new recruits are trained to constantly be alert and to think on their feet at all times. Those are some of the reasons why company inspections are, well, intense. The drill instructors inspected recruits on the proper wear of their uniforms, the cleanliness of their rifles, and their knowledge of Marine Corps history and traditions.
In this video, drill instructors with India Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, Recruit Training Regiment, conduct an inspection of recruits at Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego, California.
As stated, it gets really intense as the drill instructors get up close and personal to confront the recruits.
