Educators see how active duty Marines live and work aboard Miramar

Educators from Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and the Chicago area visited Marine Corps Air Station Miramar today for a look at how active duty Marines live and work aboard a Marine Corps installation. They also visited the flight line to get an up-close look at Marine Corps aircraft and emergency services. After a trip to the Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego Exchange for some souvenirs, the educators were treated to a concert from the Marine Band San Diego party band ensemble and toured the base museum.

Check out their experiences in their own words on the Midwest Marines Webcasts page.
Tomorrow, the educators will board the buses before dawn for a trip to Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton where they will see the Crucible, meet recruits who just completed the Crucible, take a turn in the marksmanship simulator, see the rifle range and visit one of the job specialty training schools to see how Marines are trained to perform their daily jobs.
