Educators from Ripon and elsewhere in Wisconsin learn how to do a "right face."

Marine recruits file off the final hill of the Crucible, held at Camp Pendleton in California.

Ian Stepleton

Two Riponites spent last week being given just a taste of what life in the U.S. Marine Corps — and specifically its boot camp — really is like.

They sat in on classroom discussions about various aspects of the Marines. They participated in a variety of challenges Marine recruits actually face. They even got to climb aboard various military vehicles.

But if you ask Riponites Dale Stephens and Mark Resch what impressed them most about the experience, none of those come to mind.

“Definitely, without a doubt, the Marines that spent time with us on this trip,” Stephens said.

Resch agreed.

“The most meaningful aspects were the things I didn’t know about going in,” he said, referring to time with recruits and panel discussions with enlisted Marines. “It was more interactive than I thought it would be, speaking with recruits and instructors.”

It was that pure, unvarnished time with actual Marines, particularly with recruits currently in boot camp, that meant the most to the Riponites, as well as to the 30 other educators from around Wisconsin, northern Illinois and Upper Michigan who went together on the Marine Corps Educators Workshop.

Not that they went into the experience with many preconceived notions about what they would encounter.

“I guess I didn’t have any expectations, other than I wanted to get an understanding of the Marine Corps and what their training involved, and see if there was anything else I could do going into the classroom to help with their transition [for those who already have enlisted],” Resch said.

Great article about MCRD San Diego. I would like to offer a slight correction however. The "Globe and Anchor" medal referred to in one of the pictures is actually the Eagle, Globe and Anchor, which is the official symbol of the United States Marine Corps. The EGA holds very special meaning to all current and former Marines. The following is a description of the EGA from the Marines.com website:

There is no better symbol for the purpose we serve than the emblem every Marine earns: the Eagle, Globe and Anchor. The eagle represents the proud nation we defend. It stands at the ready with our coastlines in sight and the entire world within reach of its outstretched wings. The globe represents our worldwide presence. The anchor points both to the Marine Corps' naval heritage and its ability to access any coastline in the world. Together, the eagle, globe and anchor symbolize our commitment to defend our nation—in the air, on land and at sea.

As a former Marine Officer, I felt it necessary to offer my comment. Thanks again for a great article.
