Waiting On Your Marine

Hi, folks

Here is one use of Survival Straps that came to mind as our son was completing boot camp at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island.

As a family we were trying to think of a way we could show solidarity with him while he was enduring The Crucible, the 54-hour exercise that is the defining moment of a Marine’s boot training.  Some families burn candles, but we didn’t want an open flame in the house when we would be at work or running errands.  So we decided to each design and wear a Survival Strap and not remove it until we were sure that he had earned his Eagle Globe & Anchor.

The day before graduation our new Marine had five hours of liberty available to us, and it was a tearful moment as we saw him for the first time in 5 months.  We showed us the Eagle Globe & Anchor that was awarded to him at the end of The Crucible, and we showed him the Survival Straps we wore to support his safety and success.

Attached is a photograph we took of the Survival Straps we wore that day when he showed us his EGA.

So for families of Marine recruits who want to remind themselves of what their son or daughters are enduring on all our behalves, consider designing for yourselves a Survival Strap and wear it for each hour of The Crucible as a way of helping your loved one transition from recruit to Marine.

Respectfully,

Brian Shea
