The Crucible Candle
Over the past 15 years, many family members of recruits have lit candles to burn the entirety of the crucible, showing support for their soon-to-be Marines. Some people may put a battery-operated candle in their window or turn on their recruit's bedroom light to help guide them "Home" and give them the strength to get through the event. It is also common to tell friends and family to turn on a porch light to show their support.
The EGA Shop has a great and unique crucible candle holder. The wrought iron holder contains a ceramic tile, with either your recruit's battalion crest with their last name and platoon number or another textual design representing your recruit's company. The holder has an opening to place a wax or electronic candle inside, and can be wall-mounted.
