Arriving at the Receiving Barracks, Yemassee Train Station, South Carolina these Recruits received their first taste of Marine Corps discipline. But the Yemassee Station reception was red carpet, compared with the welcome that Drill Instructor Tucker Boone gave them at Parris Island. Written for readers Seventeen and older, persons interested in becoming Marines can follow Benny, Jay Winder, Elbo Janes, Cheesy Dean and others as they gain their freedom by graduating from Parris Island. Their development into the top radio-telegraph operators of the Fleet Marine Force Atlantic, is a story of itself. Underlying what these young Jarheads told their mothers, and the success they had in radio school courses, the rest of their personalities emerge. The rest of the story takes the reader on liberty in St. Thomas, San Juan, Havana Cuba(during Batista), Las Vegas and New York. The question is- after living with these Marines for three years will the reader conclude that these are men of character? Or characters!
