The Crucible Candle
It's become a tradition to light a candle and have it burn the entirety of the crucible, showing support for your soon-to-be Marine. 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 a tradition 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.
