Our Sons are in good hands, the Marines and Drill Instructors our sons come in contact with are the cream of the crop! They are true professionals and will train our sons to the best of their abilities. Every day our sons will be their top priority. I put all my trust in the professionals that will take my son though the toughest training in the world. Our sons are in good company!
—Quote from a Marine with a son in recruit training
To this day, my son as well as every Marine I have met, continue to hold their DIs and SDI (Drill Instructors and Senior Drill Instructor) in the highest esteem and with intense respect. Your son or daughter will do the same.
—From the Founder, Tracy Della Vecchia
Every Marine will tell you that they may not remember what they ate yesterday, but they will always remember their drill instructors. Drill instructors are highly trained professionals who are the foundation to the process of making Marines. Working countless hours, they ensure that recruits receive the best training possible to prepare them for the rigors they will face as a Marine. It is the drill instructors who serve as the model and who teach recruits about Ethics and the Marine Corpsí Core Values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment.
