Rude awakening today for Midwest educators visiting Marine Corps Boot Camp in San Diego

High school teachers, counselors, coaches and administrators from Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Missouri and Illinois started the first two minutes of the Midwest Marines Educators Workshop this morning in San Diego just like recruits would experience the first two minutes of Marine Corps boot camp before spending time with Brig. Gen. Ronald L. Bailey, responsible for all recruiting and recruit training west of the Mississippi River (more on black Marine officers here). After talking candidly with recruits from the Midwest over lunch, they finished the day by actually running through an assualt course with rifles and bayonets. We'll try to get some interviews up later tonight or tomorrow, but here's what the morning welcome looked like.

An effective "pick-me-up" in the morning for Midwestern educators.
