marine moms arrived at about 6am on christmas day to visit the recruits at mcrd in san diego. there were three medical platoons this year. each recruit received a stocking filled with goodies. the recruits were given free time to visit with the marine mom volunteers and each other while reading the letters and gifts. the break from normal daily activities as always gave the recruits a time to smile and joke. we hope you find your friend or loved ones photo in the groups below.
