Marine Corps Pfc. Eric J. Walraven, son of Margaret E. Walraven of Ticonderoga, and Richard E. Walraven, earned the title of U.S. Marine after graduating from intense recruit training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, S.C. For 13 weeks, training included close-order drill, marksmanship with an M-16A4 rifle, physical fitness, martial arts, swimming, military history, customs and courtesies. One week before graduation, Walraven Parker endured The Crucible, a 54-hour final test of recruits’ minds and bodies. Upon completion, recruits are presented the Marine Corps emblem and called Marines for the first time.
