First Male Recruits Graduate Training From 4th Battalion
Since its formation, 4th Battalion had served as the only training battalion in the Marine Corps for female recruits until Jan. 5, 2019, when India Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, started their training cycle with one female platoon and five male platoons. This last March, the battalion completed recruit training with four male platoons and two female platoons; the first time ever that male recruits have graduated from the battalion. The training is the same and the standards are the same, Sgt. Gregorio Montes said of the battalion, It doesn't matter what your training company is we're doing the same thing, the same training evolutions. With [male drill instructors] being at 4th Battalion, we're just bringing it to light. We're going to show that we are training the recruits the same and making the same standard of Marine.
