Boot camp Database notice

As pictures and information are uploaded to the boot camp database by members of the site, it should be noted that the database is for Marine's only. We've had a number of pictures submitted by non-Marine's that we've removed from the database because they were from another branch of the service.

Although we're honored that others would like their information added to the database we must maintain the database as a Marine only database.

Thanks for your understanding.


Carry on Marines!!

I noticed in the database that there were some platoons with the annotation "same book". Is it because it was the same series? If so, I am wondering if my plt 233 July '64 PI would fall in to the same venue? You are doing great work! I hope somehow you will be recognized for it. Semper Fi. Mike.

Mike,

Yes when the listings show SAME BOOK it is/was a series book that lists more than one platoon. We have however listed each platoon in the series within their own platoon sections in the database. We do this so Marines from those platoons can post their contact information.

As to your comment about being recognized for the site and it's content. Although it's great hearing these comments it's never been about me or the team here at YFP. Every single person who helps run this site, or supports it does so as a committment to our Corps and you Marines.

Cpl Miller, new to site and like what I see. Comment, Plt 278 for 1961 shows January as graduation month, we actually graduated on December 19, 1961.

David, Plt 278 with the Jan. 1961 date may have started in 1960, late Oct or early Nov.
while your Plt 278 started in Oct 1961 after the Platoon numbers came back around after restarting with Plt 200 in January 1960.

I moved platoon 278,

to Dec from Jan per your request. Reading what devildog-64012 posted makes me wonder if we moved the platoon to the correct location in the database. Can one of you set the record for me?

Thanks

Gary

Since I'm in the Plt 278 photo (squad leader seated just to the right of DI S/Sgt Tavarossi) I know we graduated in December 1961. We did in fact start in October 1961.

Done

Thank's for clearing that up, the platoon will stay in it's new position in the database (Dec).

We know that there can by some mis-understanding as to dates of graduation and such. It is our goal to try and keep the boot camp database as accurit as we can for not only you Marines, but for history in general
